    Dies ist einer der grossartigsten Modelle der Firma Alden, der Shell Cordovan Cap-Toe 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.

    Neu und ungetrage.

    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 and beautifully coloured in an intense and deeply saturated oxblood. Moreover, this is the least usual and, arguably, the most elegant of cordovan models, the un-brogued cap-toe. Two of many possible lacing styles are shown, including the fanciful “Jolly Roger”, double “X” style.

    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:

    12C US..... (11D UK)..... Continental: 46C, for the slightly narrower foot.

    Shoe Condition:

    New and unworn....a store model from the Brooks Brothers San Francisco store.
