Alden x Leffot Dover, Cream Nubuck

White bucks are classic summer shoes. We made this pair from Alden in cream nubuck on micro soles that are lightweight and super comfortable. Wear them with shorts or chinos for cool summer steez.

Alden x Leffot Shortwing Derby, Hunter Green Suede

If you’re looking for something different but understated, try these hunter green shortwings from Alden. Made in suede on a classic pattern, they stand out from the regular browns and tans without looking ostentatious. And they come with brown, tan, and snuff laces so you can change up your look.

Alden Boots: Natural CXL Captoe and Snuff Suede Shortwing

These natural chromexcel captoe boots are an ideal casual boot. The combination of the flex soles and the natural CXL means they’ll be comfortable and ready to go right out of the box. They’ll pair wonderfully with khakis or jeans.

The shortwing boot is the Greenwich boot’s first cousin. Instead of the rounded toe box of the Barrie last, these boots are made on the square-toed Plaza. We’ve done them in soft snuff suede and comfortable flex soles.

Alden Chukka, Snuff Suede

Alden’s 1493 chukka is the perfect spring and summer shoe. The bright snuff suede and dynamic natural edging are the perfect addition to the vibrant colors of the season.

The unlined leather allows for one of the softest shoes you will find, as well as a cool, breathable feel, making for an ideal shoe for sockless wear. Oil-soaked flex soles are light and readily flexible, great for the various terrains of the outdoors, wherever you may choose to go this summer.
