Bootmaker Edition classic wing tip 6 inch boot made from luxurious, longwearing shell cordovan. Alden shell cordovan shoes are finished by Aldens 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. Shoe mart is proud to offer this Bootmaker Edition custom pattern, crafted not only with good looks, but with the integrity of fine shoemaking, a special addition to your wardrobe. Double oak leather outsoles. Barrie last.

* Ravello shell cordovan - to achieve this beautiful finish the clearest most perfect hides must be selected and carefully tanned to produce this unique color.

5 out of 5 stars 2nd pair of 9 Eyelet Bootmakers Wingtips 05/26/2015
Shoe Size: Fits half size smaller
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: PappaBear from Tempe, AZ US
I wrote a previous review VS Chukka. And are more narrow than chukka but not a narrow shoe in general, just clarification. These boots break in remarkable well. I am generally against the concept of "they need to be broken in". I believe most shoes / boots should feel great day one. These 10.5's were a little snug when I first put them on, and still are after a year of wearing. (don't wear often-have many Alden and others). But shell cordovon leather custom form fits to the man like no other material in the world. Its one benefit that makes Shell unique to all other. Don't get me wrong, they should not hurt your feet when you get them, however they will custom form to your feet and will stretch very slightly with wear. And these boots will feel and look better in a year than day one. My 17 year old son asked to wear them to his Prom this year. Scared me to death, but I let him and it proves the timeless fashion of a Shell Cord Wingtip. Buy with confidence.

5 out of 5 stars Wingtip vs Chukka fit 02/22/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size smaller
Shoe Width: Fits narrow
Reviewer: Pappabear from Tempe, AZ US
I bought the 10.5, which I usually wear an 11.0 or 11.5. I have the shell in Cigar in a Chukka 10.5. These fit slightly more narrow than the chukka. The laces go lower and more stitching so less forgiving.

Finish is amazing and look great. I might have them stretched. Im never quite a wide, or its sloppy, so I will wear first and see if they need to be stretched.
