- These shoes were shaped over a Barrie last and run one half size larger than regular US sizes.
Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation and is the oldest original shoe- and boot-maker remaining in New England. In collaboration with our design team, Alden handcrafted these elegant bluchers, also known as wing tips or brogues, in a special European pebbled calfskin chosen just for us, then hand stained and polished each shoe to a rich lustre. These limited editions (available only for a limited time) feature all of Alden's hallmark details, including its famed Goodyear welt, full-leather lining and tempered steel shank. 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.) When cleaning, apply a black paste or wax polish.
