On modified last, your best bet would be Moulded Shoe, but even then, No.  If you want them on that last, you'd pretty much have to buy those.  Maybe Moulded has something similar non-shell.

 

Alden Madison has something similar on the grant last.  DC and SF have something similar on Grand with commando sole.  Also, Shoemart, as mentioned above.

Actually, much to my surprise, Moulded does have that boot on their website!

Your shoes are purchased.  They should be fine.  The end.

Thank you! I haven't heard or seen much in the modified last. What's the general consensus?

Thanks for the reply!

NYDRH - outstanding collection. Where are those Nat CXL SWBs from?

Thanks, they are on the modified last from Moulded.  Probably one of my more complimented....

I would also check with J Gilbert since they make a lot of make-ups, including LWB, and make abundant use of waterlock soles.  

Thanks to all for the help on where to find my elusive LWB. The Leffot makeup in color 8 with the antique edge and double waterlock is outstanding. Unfortunately I'm not entirely sure what size I need so I don't want to take a chance on a non-refundable item. I think I need a 10D based on my 10D Indy 403, so if anyone has something they're looking to part with (shell not a must), let me know.

Go to their website for a description.  Its an orthopedic last that emphasizes arch support.  Does not work well for some with flat feet.  If you aren't specifically looking for a modified last boot, I'd recommend going with one of the other alternatives that were mentioned.  Modified is a form follows function shape.  Many don't like its appearance.

 

The rest I leave for you to discover on your own.  Searching for this information is half of the fun of the Alden experience.  I am depriving you from much of the joy of buying Alden's by just telling you the answers.

41853s in #8, but they're over $1k, ouch! Anyone know where I can find them here in the US? 

Alternatively, also looking for Alden Tankers in #8 with Antique edge, Plaza Wingtip #8, or Plaza Captoe #8 boot if anyone know where I can source any?

Alden Tanker Boots with Antique Edge - Leffot

Plaza Wingtip and Plaza Captoe Boots - J Gilbert

Generally, popular models are sold out at any given time but can be preordered once a retailer confirms an order with Alden

Context is taking orders for its Color 8 Tanker Boots with a Dark Sole as well

Last night my wife asked me, "What am I suppose to do with that ridiculous collection of shoes if/when you die?  Is there actually a market for used Alden's?  Don't tell me I'm going to have to put these up on ebay and ship them off...  They're either going with you to the grave, or I'm giving them to Goodwill."  :embar::uhoh::butbut::eek: 

 

I know many of you are pretty young, but have any of you thought about this?  I have no sons for which to pass them down.  (Sorry to be so morbid. I actually had a hard time sleeping last night.)

Yes, I've thought about it. Though I am only in my mid-30's, tomorrow is guaranteed no one. I have 2 young daughters, no sons. My wife knows that there is significant value in the shoes, even used, though she doesn't know anything about them. I have a word doc typed up with a pic of the shoes, along with what an eBay description should read, and what beginning bids should be.

I have also thought about entering into a deal with someone on here who is the same size as me, to buy them for a set discounted price, then whatever they don't want they can sell. Of course, this option will require someone with a good amount of liquidity and trustworthiness.
