Alden plain toe Blucher oxford in Black Shell Cordovan. Genuine Shell Cordovan shoes are finished by Alden's master craftsman. Using the centuries-old method of pure vegetable tanning and hand finishing, the single tannery still producing genuine shell cordovan today is indeed practising a rare art. The tanning process takes a full six months to complete and produces leather that is soft and supple, yet very durable.
Every Alden New England shoe carries a tempered steel shank, precisely contoured and triple ribbed for extra strength, the shank provides the proper support and shape required to give comfort throughout the day. Oak tanned leather bends are cut into outsoles at factory for maximum control of quality.
City Outfitters is proud to offer this model, crafted not only with good looks, but with the integrity of fine shoe-making, a special addition to your wardrobe. Every Alden New England shoe has full leather lining chosen from a special stock of supple glove linings and smooth glazed linings, double leather soles.
