Details
Bootmaker Edition, much sought after Black shell cordovan long wing blucher oxford. Alden shell cordovan shoes are finished by Alden's master craftsman. They are admired by the finest boot and shoemakers throughout the world. Using the centuries-old method of pure vegetable tanning and hand finishing, the single tannery still producing genuine shell cordovan today is indeed practicing a rare art. The tanning process takes a full six months to complete and produces leather that is soft and supple, yet very durable. Dovetailed heels, full glove leather lined flexible pure vegetable tanned leather insoles. Unsurpassed for breathable comfort and long wear, it assumes over time the contours of your foot shape giving a truly custom quality to the fit.

Beneath the insole is a layer of cork, providing additional resilience and insulation. Every Alden New England shoe carries a tempered steel shank, precisely contoured and triple ribbed for extra strength. Truly the backbone of a fine welt shoe or boot, 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.

    Rock-solid Blucher
    Review by Gaucho (on 11/23/2016)
    Very pleased with my black Cordovan LWBs. Very pleased also with the professional service provided by the staff at theshoemart.com. I'm an 11.5 D according to a Brannock device, and the 11-C LWBs I ordered fit perfectly.

    Fits Large
    Review by Brian (on 7/9/2016)
    I purchased my normal size 12 D and wore them a few times before I realized that are to big…so couldn't send back. Now I'm kinda stuck with a great shoe that is to big (order a size smaller). I will probably sell them on ebay.

    A high level of quality
    Review by Steve (on 7/5/2016)
    The Alden LWB in black is my third pair of Alden shell and they are exceptional. The construction is flawless. I am used to reading comments on shoes from other makers and there are frequent comments such as "Should I be accepting this?.." as they observe minor "defects" on stitching or other superficial issues. No such comments can be made on the LWB I purchased. The construction was wonderful and the shell quality was excellent. I could not have asked for more.
    For me, the shoe was comfortable right out of the box. I could rightly expect a break in period with a double oak sole, but I enjoyed them from the first day in the office. My work, however, does not require walking excessive distances and your experience may vary. I felt they got more comfortable by the hour.
    As for fit, I would listen to the recommendation to adjust the length by 1/2 size as that seems to be the prominent advise on a Barrie lasted shoe. I normally get 11 EEE in other brands and the right shoe is usually tight. The Barrie last is somewhat larger and fit me wonderfully right out of the box. My take-home opinion is that the shell LWB is a fantastic shoe that is immediately a main part of my shoe wardrobe and to be worn frequently. The quality and construction will insure that it will last me many years and will likely go to my son. I am so happy that I "pulled the trigger" on these classic gunboat shoes.

    Alden Men's Shoe
    Review by K.MUI (on 6/8/2015)
    Alden Men"s Long Wing Blucher Shell Cordovan Black Shell Size: 9.5 Width: D

    I normally where a size 10 in Nike sneakers and a size 9.5 Wide in dress shoes. I was about to purchase a 9.5W but after calling in to Shoemart and speaking to the owner he suggested I go with the D (Medium) instead. I took his suggestion and I love the fit, it would of been too wide for me though at 9.5 I do still have some toe space, I think I just have short toes because where it creases it is perfect and my feet are not sliding. Beautiful shoes but Cordovan definitely creases a lot faster than Calf.

    Very disappointed
    Review by Edward O. (on 5/15/2012)
    I thought I was in for a real treat when I finally decided to upgrade to a pair of Alden shell-cordovans. I'm sorry I bought them. A shoe this expensive should both look great (they do) and feel great (not). I ordered a half size lower than normal as instructed. The length is fine the width at the arch and ball of my foot is also fine. They fit OK at first.

    The problem with this shoe is that the heel area is sloppy. The shoe does not securely wrap around the heel and ankle..the heel area is too wide basically. Now that I've broken them in for two weeks, when walking feel like I'm wearing a pair of slippers or flip flops the way back end moves around. I suppose I could wear thick socks, but then the middle of the shoe is too tight. I'm about to throw them away and go back to the Florshiem Imperial Kenmoore, which fit perfectly. I hope my wife doesn't see them in the trash.

    What a pity; I really wanted to enjoy this shoe for years. The situation is probably only going to get worse as the shoe stretches over time and/or a hole in the glove lining forms from all the movement and rubbing. After searching online I found out other people have this same complaint...should have researched it better before buying.

    Exceptional Dress Shoe
    Review by Mr Smith (on 4/26/2011)
    Those of you accustomed to the exceptional fit and finish of an Alden shoe will NOT be disappointed here. The shell leather shines like a mirror. My family gave me these shoes as a birthday gift, and I was so pleased with them! They are very comfortable and beautiful. I can walk/stand in these shoes for hours without fatigue. The substantial build of these shoes does make for a heavier feel, but the super-comfortable footbed will hold up your weight all day.

    As it states in the product info, the shoe built on the Barrie Last does fit a half-size larger than usual. So make sure to adjust your purchase accordingly.
