    Alden probably could but they don't currently. To be clear Alden NYC stocks the shoes I described, they weren't a custom order by me (another poster mentioned the shoes a few pages back which inspired my visit today)

    This is very helpful. Much obliged. Seems like the Epic is what I need. Almost wonder if it might have been better for all of my LHS, but there is no way I would buy all new trees for that reason.
    One is Modified, one is Barrie, no? Keep the Modified if you like that last. Harder to find again relative to the other.
    Thank you for your response. Maybe the barrie just works better for your foot shape/proportions?
    That looks awesome. You did a great job. I actually like it better with the welt left black, although I would not have predicted that it would be my preference.

    "That looks awesome. You did a great job. I actually like it better with the welt left black, although I would not have predicted that it would be my preference."

    My sentiments exactly, I couldn't visualize how the black welt would look so I kept it natural on the first pair. I had no choice on the second pair as the welt and double leather sole came from the factory in black.

    Now looking at the pics side by side I think that I also prefer the welting in black.. A good thing for the buyer (if he see's this) is that he can bring it to B. Nelson who will easily and cheaply color the welting black if he so desires.

    cheers

    My apologies. The Modified last is a great fit for many forum members and looks great IMO. It's quite different from the other Alden lasts.

    Very nice sir!
