Bootmaker Edition George boot plain toe with silver buckle, shell cordovan boots 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. 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 model, crafted not only with good looks, but with the integrity of fine shoemaking, 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, leather soles. Shoe Mart is proud to offer this model, crafted not only with good looks, but with the integrity of fine shoemaking, a special addition to your wardrobe.

3 out of 5 stars Bummer 01/13/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from APO, AE US
The Cordovan experience is great.

Bummer- why does the strap have to break off after not even a year. This part is apparently not strong cordavan leather and ripped off. My local shoemaker will fix it. The shoe dream was a fairy shoe tale. Wake up. Alden is just another shoe brand.

Well, I still like and buy them though.

1 out of 5 stars Problem with Strap 02/23/2012
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Justin Bancroft from Tempe, AZ US
I have 5 pairs of aldens besides these, all fit,look and hold up great

but these are another story- The strap holding the buckle broke after 3 months - the leather tore. thats right, leather, they didn't use shell in the straps! Also, the straps were not the same thickness on each shoe-which I thought was odd.

Hopefully we can get this resolved- I am very disappointed in this shoe- it looked great, fit great, but I would never have expected Alden to take shortcuts. Maybe this was a factory 2nd that got slipped in.

4 out of 5 stars Now, I walk to heaven with shell or I go to hell. 03/30/2011
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: S. B. from Germany
The Style was a personal must-have even though, it wasn't available in the right mid-size. I got me the boot a size bigger than my standard US size, after a return with no problems. The boot still is good to wear - it fits perfect with thick socks.

The leather is something special. I used to wear Church's calfskin shoes. Now, this Horween Cordovan Shell manufactured by Alden is a salute to American-made Excellence. Nothing, but shell now! No wrinkles, but waves. I already got me the Long Wing Bluchers, too.

A chart to translate the Alden lasts a bit better would help shopping at TheShoeMart.

Unpacking the new boots I didn't expect Alden to be a little careless with the paint. The grey inner leather was blurred with the black from the upper leather. You can't tell wearing them. They look great in a Benz as much as on an old Vespa scooter.

Thanks ShoeMart!

Further more cooperation with Alden, please!

Further more special styles!
