Anyone wear modified last? Can it be compared to any other last regarding going up or down 1/2 size or width? I would just love to hang out at Moudled Shoe for a day.

I think modified last fits a bit like Hampton in the arch and heel and a bit looser than Barrie in the toe. If you go down a half size in Barrie, you may also need to in Modified.

Thank you. That’s helpful.

I find it extremely TTS. I have duck feet and get a bit of heel slip in my Grant last boots, but my Modified longwings are a perfect fit.

Yenni just posted snuff wing tip boots on IG, hoping that means my pair are in.

Hmm, I had the heel slip and I couldn’t get the laces tight enough when I went TTS in grant.

I wear my 'normal' size. No adjustment. And yes, the Moulded Shoe team are fantastic.

I’ve got a smooth chamois “All Terrain” Indy on Vibram lug from AoC. It’s really great. That sole is a tank. The only drawback for me was the sole and leather insole did not insulate from ye cold at all so on the snowiest days my feet would get damn frozen, even with warm thick woolen socks. I bough an LL Bean shearling insole pad and that solved the problem.
Did the insole change the fit for you? I have the same insoles and was thinking of doing the same thing and going up a half size.
