    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 (the world’s premiere tanner) reserves their choicest hides for their number one client, Alden.  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 oxblood. Also rather an exception is this Cap-Toe (or Half Brogue) variety.

    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 700-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:

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

    Shoe Condition:

    Soles and heels have been properly redone and show almost no wear since replacement.
