Classic 2 eyelet Chukka boot made from long wearing 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.

* Ravello & Cigar shell cordovan - to achieve the beautiful finish, the clearest most perfect hides must be selected and carefully tanned to produce these rare colors.

5 out of 5 stars New Chukka Boots 02/19/2014
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Jason from Littleton, CO US
First a comment on the Shoe Mart. Fast turn around and they use FedEx so the delivery was by 10:30AM. They require a signature so I stayed home from work this morning to sign for my new shoes. Second, I viewed and re-viewed the video on trying on Alden shoes. I followed the direction given. I slipped my right foot ever so gently into the shoe and used a shoe horn. The characteristic Cordovan wavy wrinkle was there no way around it. It didn't matter that I was on carpet. The wrinkle was impossible to avoid. Never the less, the new Alden Shell Cordovan Chukka Boots fit as perfect as any shoe I've owned. The half size down suggestion is appropriate. I've never spent more than $425.00 on a pair of shoes before usually just slip on dress shoes that I try to match with jeans as well as suits. These new Chukkas are in a class all by themselves in terms of fit and finish. I shopped everywhere online and The Shoe Mart while not always the lowest on each shoe they are right there and appear to have a good arrangement with Fedex so the shipping chareges added in make it all the same. Stick with The Shoe Mart.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Product 05/03/2012
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from Ann Arbor, Michigan US
Shell Cordovan is well worth the money, the continuing natural shine with simple brushing eliminates the cost of most shoe shines, that Shoe Mart is willing to stock unusual colors makes this shoe highly desirable. The cigar chukka is very good looking and very comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic Product. Without doubt superior footwear 01/01/2012
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: SIMON from Sugar Land, TX US
This is my first pair of Cordovan leather boots, and they far exceed my expectations. I wear them all the time, and I'm eager to order a second pair in the Ravello color so I can alternate and give them a rest. The comfort, style and the consistent good look of the leather is amazing. I own Churches, Cheaney, Trickers and Grenson shoes and my Alden Cordovan Chukka Boots are my favorite.

5 out of 5 stars Leather without Equal 07/14/2010
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Andrew Dillard from Manhattan Beach, CA USA
The Cordovan leather is without equal. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth and a go over with a horsehair brush is all it takes to keep the natural shine of this leather in like new condition. One pair I've owned for 3-months has never seen wax polish and they shine like the day I took them out of the box. I find that I look for reasons and occasion's to wear my chukkas which I own in both Cigar and Whiskey. Pair them with Chinos of any color, slacks in more casual office settings and enjoy the natural sheen and wonderful patina that is unique to cordovan leather goods. A well made American product that I would recommend to anyone. On the construction side hand made in Alden factories here in the USA since 1884. Couple that with the ability to resole your worn shoe bottoms over and over and you can see why these will stand the test and hopefully get passed down a generation or two. I hope my son grows to share my size as he will have inherited a quality product.

5 out of 5 stars Quality without compromise 12/14/2009
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from Inglewood, CA US
I picked up a pair, and they quickly have become my favorite go to shoe for both work and play. I have the black Alden chukka Boot in shell cordovan and the leather quality and workmanship is immediately evident once you open the box and slip the boots on. The fit is one of the better fits I've had. These boots will stay with me for a very long time.
