Alden Dover, Tan Suede

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect shoe for summer than Alden’s unlined suede Dover blucher. Made on the Barrie last in Tan Suede on Flex Welt soles these shoes are as light and soft as any sneaker, they’re also available in Snuff Suede.

With a quick spray of Nano Protector you can even wear these barefoot in the rain with utmost confidence, of course we’re hoping for sunny days ahead.

Alden Dover, Snuff Suede Restock

We have restocked on The Alden Dover Blucher, which  is a dream to wear. Made in unlined snuff suede there is no softer, lighter and more flexible welted shoe out there. These are ideal for spring and summer wear.

The shoes feel like slippers from the moment you first slip them on. And unlike rubber sole shoes, the leather Flex Welt soles give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier.

Alden x Leffot Snuff Suede Cooney Boots

We drew from the Alden well once again and the result is our stunning new “Cooney” boot made in luxuriously soft snuff suede. Made expressly for Leffot these boots are on Alden’s tapered Aberdeen last and feature low profile flat Flex Welt soles, brown agatine eyelets and speed hooks.

To say these could be the most comfortable pair of boots you ever own is not an overstatement. The Cooney boots are ultra soft, lightweight, and flexible. The fact that they’re also smart as hell looking makes these a winner and all is well.

Alden; All Day Long

Yesterday was quite a unique day; it was the first time all the shoes we sold were by a single manufacturer. I’m not surprised they were Alden’s but it was unusual. Two guys were so excited about their new shoes they trashed their old pair and wore the new ones out of the store.

Here they are before and after; it’s not surprising they wore the new ones out.

In hindsight it probably had something to do with the fact that Floyd Gilmore a.k.a. “Mr. Alden” was here for a good part of the afternoon. Floyd is the northeast rep for Alden, and is no rookie either. He’s now in his 53 year with the company. If there’s ever anything want to know about Alden, Floyd’s your man.
