Alden Bootmaker Edition plain toe blucher oxford 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. 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, double leather soles.

Alden Men"s Plain Toe Blucher Shell Cordovan Color 8 Size: 11 Width: 3E

This is a classic cordovan plain toe blucher. Great lines and color #8 make it especially attractive that collects its fair share of compliments.

Reviewer: A viewer from Cabin John, MD US
I have worn Allan Edmonds shoes for over fifteen years and tried these as an alternative for no particular reason. this is a very solid, very comfortable shoe and very good looking without being too ornate. shell cordovan is a fairly unique type of leather. it is very expensive, but it has a look and durability that warrant the added expense. hard to go wrong with these if they fit your feet and your wallet.

Reviewer: Jim W. from Corning, NY US
This is my third pair of Alden cordovan shoes, and, as with my previous Alden purchases, they are perfect. They are comfortable and classy looking. Like all Aldens, they are very well made, and should last many years. The service by Shoemart (first time) was also outstanding, with the shoes delivered in 4 work days.
