    I'm too lazy to put them up on SF marketplace, but I'm letting go of my #8 shell captoe boots on the 'bay, size 8 modified last.

    I contacted Rafael; Rafael will contact Alden; then I'll get a message back. I'll post the news when I receive it. If Alden has not confirmed the order, we have the option of canceling in which case all deposits will be refunded.

    thanks for the update.

    I guess if the refund comes back around, I'll just grab something else modified, maybe suede

    The refund is optional. We can wait or cancel.

    ehh, I've already written the money off. I don't mind waiting, but also wont be heartbroken if I just grab a regular kudu.

    thanks again for the update. appreciate you taking the lead on this

    PhiPsi32, thanks as always. You've been quiet lately. Not that I've been posting much either. Been kind of frustrated with Alden lately and like some others, have been exploring other brands. Waiting on a Carmina boot mto delivery right now and and am excited about a possible ravello-like color shell mto from c&j. I think I'm done with mto's from Alden unless it's a pre-confirmed mto.

    Regarding this mto, I'm going to wait to see what Alden's response and then decide.

    Thanks again for all you did.

    They are...useless. When it comes to MTO.

    Gents, try the Vass P2 last. You will not be disappointed.

    How's P2 in shape versus say VASS Banana Last?

    -Separate Note - Sorry that you guys are still waiting for your order though Alden. I hope it get accepted by them soon.

    Are there any folks here who wear the EEE Modified Last that have found a good Vass fit?

    If so which Vass last and width?

    My thanks, gentlemen. I've been off the radar lately. Life has gotten in the way of Alden acquisitions. I hate it when that happens!!!!

    Hi PhiPsi32:

    Has Alden not responded to Rafael? I'd like to decide if I want to remain on this mto or not. Funds for my boot addiction will be severely limited for some time after my wife and I spent the equivalent of quite a few pairs of exotic shell modified last boots on some wool and silk Persian carpets. Every penny counts now! :-<<
