Product Details

Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation of shoemaking, and its integrity and attention to craft have long made us loyal followers. These chukkas are handcrafted in the U.S. using genuine Horween No. 8 shell cordovan leather. (Prized for its fine lustre and extraordinary durability, this fine leather requires more traditional—and time-consuming—production methods, but the result is a far superior shoe.) Featuring Alden's hallmark Goodyear welt, full leather lining and a tempered steel shank. If properly cared for, these boots will last for generations (to make sure they do, you can always send them back to Alden for resoling). When cleaning, apply a cordovan-specific No. 8 wax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by These are really nice They are sweet. It looks like they're selling the rest of these and not replacing them, probably because the cost of purchase is so high. This is my third pair of aldens and obviously the most expensive, but they are the most versatile. I've got the indy and the suede chukka, but with dressing for work those two are generally saved for the weekend. The cordovan chukka is overall a better investment. Especially since these things increase in price at like 6%+ per year, which is faster than inflation. The double leather sole is much thicker than the single flex welt and these feel solid. Some brands make these with a commando sole (rubber forefoot and heel) which makes them more versatile for all types of weather. Who'd wear these things in the rain and wear out the sole quicker? Not comfortable with that yet. Anyway, these are the coolest shoes I'll probably ever own. Alden resoles them for about $180 when the time comes. September 6, 2014
