What: Alden® for J.Crew plain-toe suede boots.
The story: Massachusetts shoemaker Alden provides you with a lot of reasons to admire these boots. Their comfortable wedge soles and top-quality suede uppers will look handsome with a suit. In fact, they’re so sharp it’s easy to ignore what’s happening under the hood, namely, steel-shank construction, a Goodyear-welted sole and a full leather lining. But those long-wearing marks of craftsmanship are exactly why these boots will stay admirable.
