    I really want black shell punch cap oxfords on the modified last, but I think I am screwed.

    Just found out Alden doesn't do oxfords on the modified last. Alden pisses me off so much.

    3 weeks into a black calf PCT modified high top. Great arch support and dont need my orthotic. First time wearing something where I don't pronate and its an etirely new experience. Moulded explained that the high arch, long shank made for left and right, heel design, sturdy heel counters that come forward for added support plus a high top would be perfect.Im still adjusting, especially to the feeling of the high top, but its getting better and Im really starting to prefer that. I dont get to NY so they wanted an outline of my feet and some info before selling me anything. Then had some phone conversation and some follow up after delivery. Moulded has been great! Im sure Ill purchase another pair of similar boots in another color.

    Interested, Moulded insisted that I come in for a fitting (which won't be until July). Glad it worked out for you. Alden of DC also recommended the TrueFlare last for pronation. For those with flat feet, is there any interest in doing a MTO? The modified last MTO not withstanding.

    I would try and get a shoe and boot makeup from Moulded, undoubtedly.

    Perhaps we should try the carrot and the stick. Boycott Alden until we get a modified last in shell.

    We've crossed 50; when we get to 75, I'll draft a letter, get your gent's info, and begin the contact.

    I did try on an Alden Indy where I live so I knew the length would be OK. I was specifically looking for a dress cap toe and the modified last. I live 2000 miles from NY and never go there. However I would now like very much to visit Moulded and go thru the fitting process and see their full selection in person. Maybe someday. I am very impressed with my purchase, their service and advice. Today Ive had them on for soon 10 hours and doing great! The orthotic always took care of the arch problem but this last with its heel structure and high top really solves the pronotion.

    Kind sir, please add me to your list.

    I concur with PatrickBOOTH, punch cap oxford on the modified last. But over black, I'd like to see some cognac.

    I would give Alden all my money for punched-cap toe oxfords.
