    The photos may be poor, but the boots are spectacular. Don't forget we're looking for a few more gentlemen to launch a Kudu Indy Modified last.

    Agreed. Corresponded with Charles entirely by email a couple of weeks ago; sadly they were out of my size in these and cigar and don't anticipate more in either for a couple of years. That said, others in the 10ish size range have been successful the past month, though based on my interaction with Charles, stock is extremely limited so now is the time to inquire.

    Anyone know if Anatomica carries larger sizes in Modified last Aldens (11.5)?

    To push this further, any wider widths (maybe up to EEE)?

    Moulded Shoe carries EEE and large sizes. Not that you shouldnt check with Anatomica also, but if you're in the US, I'd check Moulded Shoe's inventory first.

    Keep in mind that Alden no longer makes EEE boots on the Modified last. Unless you can find old stock, you're SOL.

    I'm certainly willing. Alden completely disregarded a very real interest in this project (albeit Rafael may have "jumped the gun" a bit). As it stands, Alden is scoffing at most MTO projects, and it seems they are particularly unwilling to deal in the Modified.

    I've been fawning over Vass for awhile now; any other options would be fantastic. Let's play.

    These are amazing. Anatomica has the best makeups. I can't wait for the weather to turn to start wearing my boots.

    Anatomica does not stock EEE - I believe the stock to E width

    alright. pls, let me prepare myself doing additional homework and some deeper research before i lay out my ideas on this.

    actually there is one or another project sleeping in my drawer. will wake it up and get back to you(all).

    in the meantime can someone guide me to some inside shots of an Alden on the ML last. this would be extremly helpful, thanks.

    also take a look in the Austro-Hungarian thread for some inspiration, if you please.
