    You are mistaken. I own that shoe. It's on the Snap last and doesn't look a thing like the M58. I emailed Alden and asked them.

    Here's exactly what I emailed Alden
    "Here are the identification numbers on the cap toe
    8D 2J22 025 5 and below that
    5803"

    Here's their response:
    "Snap Last"

    Feel free to produce some proof of what you're saying.

    Well you're wrong too because he said he bought it prior to Alden changing the lasts for BB shoes, so it's the Aberdeen last actually. At any rate, I have the BB PTBs in the M58 last and it's a great last.

    There's nothing wrong with what I said. The shoe you linked to is made on the Snap last. That's a fact. Also, the reviewer is 100% correct. He did not post his review for the wrong shoe, as you suggested.


    The cap toe blucher has never been made on the M58 last. It is currently made on the Snap last. I'm not sure how I can be more clear than that.

    But the picture Furo posted is not the snap last... I said above it looks to me like the M58 last.

    I don't think anyone suggested the shoe pics I posted were made on the Snap Last.

    If you look closely at your BB link and my actual pics, you can see the clear difference, where the Aberdeen last (my shoes, model 2161) has the longer, narrower toe box compared to the Snap Last pictured in your link.

    Also, the M58 last is closer to the Barrie than the Aberdeen, by far. So the two lasts are on opposite ends of the spectrum, ref below:

    The pic does looks like m58 to me. I'm not saying that it is the M58, but in the pics, certainly looks like it.

    Here's the M58 PTB on the left, Barrie on the right taken from as straight down as possible.

    From your pics, I still doubt your Aldens are on the Aberdeen (totally looks like M58 to me) but maybe it's just the angle of your pics.

    I just reserved a pair of the Leffot Day Tripper ravello captoe boots for their fall/winter order. Fuck yeah!

    My shoes are in fact Aberdeen. Here, see for yourself:

    I'm not sure what else to say other than you're wrong. And they really don't look anything like the M58 photo you posted imo...

    Really didn't look like Aberdeen to me, sorry. Aberdeen seems to have a more pointy toe whereas these pic show a more flat rounded toe.

    Do you wear the same size on the M58 as the Barrie?

    ?

    See my post again. I displayed the Aberdeen last from the chart right below my pic of my own shoe. The toe shape is exactly the same... I'm not seeing how you're missing this....

    Here, I'll make it even easier.

    I really can't agree with this statement at all. These totally look the same to me, or certainly more 'same' than different:

    Show these 2 pics to anyone who doesn't know and ask them if it's the same last. They will answer yes.
