Custom Bootmaker Edition Black Shell Cordovan George boot with plain toe and silver buckle. The George Boot balances the best features of Alden's shell cordovan chukka boots and monk strap shoes: ankle height, secure closure, and distinct style.
Genuine 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.

Every Alden New England shoe has full leather lining chosen from a special stock of supple glove linings and smooth glazed linings, leather soles.
