    Dies ist einer der grossartigsten Modelle der Firma Alden, der Shell Cordovan “Halb-Brogue”. 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 Alden mit seinen besten Stücken tatsächlich Brooks Brothers beliefert! Auf alle Fälle ist dies ein ausgenommen schönes Stück Cordovan.

    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 Alden reserves their choicest hides for their Brooks Brother production. In any cases the leather used in this shoe is an especially handsome piece of Cordovan and beautifully coloured in an intense and deeply saturated black. Cordovan is usually found in shades of burgundy -oxblood, cherry, aubergine; the very useful and practical black cordovan, as seen here, is the exception….as is the Cap-Toe (or Half Brogue) variety. This shoe, particularly the “E”, the somewhat wider fitting, 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:

    9-9.5E US..... (8-8.5F UK)..... Continental: 42-42.5E, for the somewhat wider foot. This is marked a US 9 but this is Aldens "generous" 9, thus suitable for a 9.5 too.

    Shoe Condition:

    Original sole and heel showing very slight wear. Excellent.
