1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think you are completely missing the point of the modified last.

    Have numerous shoes/boots from Alden (and other brands) and while Modified may not be comparable to the Aberdeen or Plaza within the Alden last world, the fit of the Modified is excellent for me. The heel grib, arch support, and ball width is a unique combination. As a casual boot or shoe, I think it's great.

    If I want sleek, I can reach for my EGs, if it's comfort for the day, the Modified (and Barrie as a close second) are worn.

    I don't doubt for a second that the fit is fantastic. Just not a pretty last.

    edit: Sorry if I rubbed anyone the wrong way. Didn't mean to rant.

    I agree pretty is not an adjective I commonly use with the Modified. :)

    Interesting they have numerous of these, e.g., Modified, TruSquare, TruBalance, etc.

    I wonder if the Barrie was made for similar purposes since it does run slightly more voluminous.

    There are more pictures for the pt boot on the online site now. Frans has updated that it will be antique edge color with commando soles.

    I actually have flat feet and a medical condition that offers the possibility of orthopedic shoes as a treatment. When I learned about Alden's orthopedic line a couple of years ago I tried to get my doctor to "prescribe" a pair of cordovan shoes for me....I was shot down :)

    Thanks, that does look like it is the shoe in question. I guess not a bad look for a very casual "athletic" orthopedic shoe. When do you use them?


    Thanks for the link

    They are very casual and make it an easy transition from street to bowling ally! I wear them with jeans ..khakis...alternative to PTB.

    They kind of remind me of monkey boots.
