I did snap a pic of the Ravello at TSM just because it was sooo stunning with the antiqued / storm welt...almost looks like it's smiling. Take me home

What do you guys think of the Indy boot on a modified last? To me, they're just not the same. In my opinion, the wider toebox of the Tru-Balance last gives it the appeal. I'd like to hear some opinions.

 

What do you guys think of longwing bluchers on a modified last versus the Barrie last?

 

The virtue of the modified last is the more natural fit, to my understanding, for most foot shapes. Here's a link, which many of you may have clicked, on a comparison: http://mouldedshoe.tumblr.com/post/39687208653/barrie-last-on-the-left-modified-on-the-right-i

 

Thanks in advance.

i would call either alden sf or alden dc to inquire. however, i think i read somewhere that they don't produce anything on the leydon above an E

Yes. I can't recall if I ever saw it. It's strange that they make it in both C, D and E when most people has to go with an E. Who can fit in a C on Leydon?!

 

Frans Boone has a make up on Barre, but it's with double waterlock sole, and I really prefer the flex welt for that kind of shoe.

Olaf, I wear 9.5E in Barrie shoes/boots and a 10E in the Leydon snuff. It works fine (though still snugger than other 10Es I own in Tremont, Hampton, Aberdeen and Grant).

I have looked for EE, but as mentioned before, they don't stock it - you can do a special order with Alden NY for an EE, though.

Unfortunately, I don't have a pic in the wild for you, but I was recently at Leffot and was eyeing these as well. FWIW The pics online certainly do them justice and I think they would make a great casual shoe
