*ALDEN – Brown SHELL CORDOVAN Brogued Cap-Toe Oxford: 46D
Alden of New England
Brown Shell 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, in any cases the leather used in this shoe is an especially handsome piece of Cordovan and the unusual and much desired BROWN shell cordovan.
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…but not here!
