    I've regaled this thread a few times in my quest for blue suede shoes, and I appreciate all the leads and helpful advice. Alden NY was OOS in my size for their blue suede make up. While I contemplated the Union Made make up, I received an email from Leather Soul stating that they just happened to have a pair of unlined blue suede PTBs in my size. (Crappy cell phone photo follows)

    This is just what I threw on to test drive the shoes. The fit is very good for me. The only thing I noticed is that the heel rise seems a little more shallow. There is no heel slippage; it just feels weird. You may be able to see in the photo that I have a little extra space in the mouth but again it doesn't seem to affect fit or comfort. Sorry, Furo, I know you don't like the Barrie last, but this is the most comfortable shoe I've tried on out of the box.

    Anyway, my thanks again to everyone who helped me reach my goal.

    If it's a web hosted pic, then the source image must have changed.

    You could go back and edit your post in the meantime.

    Hi PhiPsi, those shoes are nice! I thought you were looking at the modified last though...

    Yes, I am still interested in the Modified last, but it has been largely inaccessible to me. I will be on the east coast sometime in the next few months, and I am planning to take the train to Manhattan. Hopefully, I will be able to browse and get fitted at Alden NY, Moulded Shoe, Leffot, etc.

    In the meantime, the crew at Leather Soul keeps coming up with what I want in the size I want it in. After trying on the 404, I liked the Kudu leather but wanted the contrast toe stitching and commando sole. So I emailed LSW asking them to consider a restock. Oki responded to say that one was coming, and I could reserve my size. Then the shoes arrive 7 weeks early. I email LS again to ask what else is in the pipeline. Oki asks me what I want. I say I like those navy suede PTBs when are they coming back? He says I have your size right now. WTF? I thought they were sold out.

    So I'm still up for the Modified last, but I think the Barrie is also a contender.
