Alden Shoe – Natty Longwing and Tanker Re-Stock (LSW & LSBH)

It’s been over a year wait but they’re finally back in stock. For those of you who placed preorders, thank you for your patience. We will be in contact with you shortly.

Horween Chromexcel (CXL) continues to be the most popular leather for casual shoes. Two years ago, we sat down with Art Tarlow, the owner of Alden Shoe and came up with these two models, our first in natural CXL.

Both models feature a plantation crepe sole.

Alden Shoe – Kudu Ultimate Indy Re-Stock (LSW)

We’ve just received a very small (24 pair) restock of our Kudu Ultimate Indys at LSW. This time, we’re offering them with tan cotton laces as well as the original flat waxed laces. It’s amazing how much laces change the look of a pair of boots.

As always, our Ultimate Indys are on the Trubalance last with a commando sole.

Give us a call or shoot us an email if you are interested. Please remember, comments left on the blog aren’t the most effective way to contact us.
