    Dies ist einer der grossartigsten Modelle der Firma Alden, der Shell Cordovan Derby. Dieser Schuh ist ganz gewiss ein Klassiker, der in einer grossen Tradition steht. Ein jedes Stück Leder ist unterschiedlich und ich beginne zu glauben, dass Horween mit seinen besten Stücken tatsächlich Alden beliefert! Auf alle Fälle ist dies ein ausgenommen schönes Stück Cordovan.


    Size Details:

    46-46.5D (12-12.5D US)....(11-11.5E UK) für den mittel-breiten Fuss.

    Shoe Condition:

    Fein. Sehr leicht getragen.

    Alden is, of course the premiere purveyor of cordovan shoes in the world, and this shoe is proof positive of their excellence; truly one of my personal favourites. Every piece of leather is a bit different from every other and I begin to believe that Horween, of Chicago, (who provide cordovan leather to most of the premiere shoemakers in the world) reserve their choicest hides for Alden, their long-time top client, In any cases, the leather used in this shoe is an especially handsome piece of cordovan in an intense and deeply saturated black.  Moreover, this is the least usual and, arguably, among the most elegant of cordovan models, the un-brogued plain front Derby. In short, this shoe, if it is your size, is a true “find”!

    Cordovan is traditionally an American preoccupation but now, lately, very much in vogue among European businessmen and professionals, who, after all, are the most likely to be able to afford these 600-plus Euro shoes. Duty and VAT make these American-made shoes considerably more expensive in Europe than in America, actually about 35% higher.


    Size Details:

    Marked 12D, Alden's typically generous sizing, thus: 12-12.5D.......11-11.5E UK.......Continental: 46-46D, for the medium width foot. Sold wiout trees.lightly narrower foot.

    Shoe Condition:

    Very lightly worn. Near new non-slip rubber heels.
