Alden Atom Blucher Re-Issue

The Atom blucher was originally part of the Alden’s Foot Balance System made on the Truflare last (orthopedic line). Our Atom’s been tweaked a bit here and there and is made on the Tremont last.

We detailed these shoes with versatility in mind; they can be worn equally well casually or for business. The soles are single leather bone bottoms with antiques edges, which are both light and flexible. The Tremont last fits similar to the Barrie but has a round higher toe box with a slight chiseled drop that adds a bit of formality that the Barrie lacks.

The sizing is the same as the Barrie; drop down a half size but in our opinion the Tremont has the advantage of a more positive heel fit. These shoes are beyond versatile and incredibly comfortable. If you’re in the market for a great all around shoe this is it.
