Product Details
Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation and is the oldest shoe- and boot-maker in New England. Alden handcrafted these elegant bluchers, also known as wing tips or brogues, in a premium European suede handpicked by our designers. They feature all of Alden's hallmark details, including its famed Goodyear welt, a tempered steel shank and dovetail heel reinforcement—and they're available only at J.Crew. Quite simply, this is true craftsmanship and custom shoemaking at its finest. (To be sure they last generations, you can always send them back to Alden for resoling.)
