Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cuso Great investment!
This is a great pair of classic, durable, and top quality shoes. Had these for over a year and look like they are new still. They look and fit great and wear gradually (even though Alden offers refurbishment of the goodyear welted sole). They go great with anything (chinos, denim, slacks, and suits) and can be worn pretty much to any occasion. I always get complements when I wear these since people can see the evident style, fashion, and quality. Absolutely happy with these shoes. Don't hesitate to buy it will be a great investment for a pair that will last a long, long time.

Not cheap, but a truly worthy fashion investment. Great with a suit or with jeans.

I normally do not spend this kind of money on shoes. I was tired of burning through the $150 quality shoes that look nice out of the box but look terrible 3 months later. So I decided to go for it. I am very glad I did. The shoes are great quality and feel. I expect these to last me a long long time. Plus they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by John Superb Shoes From J Crew
This is my 5th pair of the JCrew by Alden Waxed Longwing Bluchers (Tobacco). They are the most beautiful shoes I have owned and the quality is second to none. In fact, I have never had men compliment my shoes until I started wearing these and I proudly tell them that JCrew sells them and that I highly recommend them. In fact, none of the shoes wore out.. it's just that I am incredibly fond of my shoes looking fairly new (in other words.. I can wear a pair for a year or longer and they still show no signs of real wear). I would like to also add that they are a classic style that simply remains in style no matter what the decade is. The tobacco color is incredibly beautiful and I can honestly say that, with these shoes on, I stand out among men-- again, it wasn't until I bought my first pair that other men complimented them and in turn I tell them that I bought them from JCrew. In fact, since 1999 I have bought all of my shoes from JCrew.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Palmbeacher Buy these shoes.
If you are reading this, you are seriously considering this purchase. Do it. This is my second pair of Aldens after a pair of Indy boots. These shoes are comfortable from the first time you wear them, no breaking-in required. The leather is buttery soft, yet you wont have to worry about them getting damaged. The brown leather gets more and more beautiful the longer you wear them, be ready to get lots of compliments. They look good with jeans or dress pants; in a pinch, I've even worn them sockless with khaki shorts after the gym. I live in tropical Florida and have put these through plenty of rain events, and the leather dries up just fine, no stains of any kind. Simple maintenance, a regular brushing and some moisturizing cream is all you need for these. Look around, there are no other Aldens with quite the same type of leather. You wont regret getting these.
