    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 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.
