Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation and is the oldest shoemaker in New England. Available only at J.Crew, these elegant bluchers, or wing tips, are handcrafted in smooth European leather for a handsome burnished lustre that only gets better with age.
