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.

Deer Bone Restock

We’ve just restocked our popular deer bone for polishing cordovan. The oils inside this deer bone, when rubbed into shell cordovan leather, will restore uniformity to the color and smooth over scratches. It can even remove some small creases and welts. This is the secret weapon for polishing shell cordovan shoes.
