Wanted to post a review on my experience with moulded shoe and ask the members of this forum for advice. I have touble wearing my dress shoes for long walks on concrete. I get knee and back pain so I'm forced to wear sneakers outside of the office. My goal has been to find a pair of dressy commuter shoes that don't hurt my knees and back. After reading about them on this forum, I went to moulded shoe to find out more about Alden's modified last and was told I am a good candidate. I was given advice to stick with leather soles. When they went upstairs to see what was in my size they came back with some borning looking calfskin shoes for $540. I asked if/when they could get me cordovan shoes and I was told I needed to go to to Europe/Japan and pay 1000 plus. I left the store considering buying a pair of $540 dollar calfskin shoes and stopped at Alden Madison on my way back to work to see what they had. Alden Madison had one pair of 10.5 V tips #8 in modified last so I pulled the trigger thinking I might not get the chance to get corovan modified last again at $650. It turns out the modifed lasts are comfortable to wear on carpet (similar to my barrie last Aldens) but they still hurt my knees/back on concrete. I read that Molded will resole and convert to commando soles or crepe soles and they use the same materials as Alden. When I emailed Moulded to ask about this service, I was told to go back to Alden on Madison if I was having trouble with their shoes. I read on these forums that they were willing to do work on shoes purchased elsewhere. I am upset/angry with their response and they have now lost a potential customer. I won't step foot in there again. So I'm going back to the drawing board. I need to find a pair of commuter shoes that look good but provide some shock absorption. I'm looking at Alden of Carmel's Longwing with commando sole or JCrew's longwing with crepe sole. I'm also looking at the idea of converting a pair of shoes that I already own. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I may solve my issue?
