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.

Edward Green Shanklin and Ryde

Unlined shoes make summer’s heat just a little more bearable. Two new unlined models from Edward Green arrived this week, just as the weather’s starting to heat up.

The Shanklin is a chukka boot built for ease and comfort. Available in Indigo or Mushroom suede, they can be worn in a number of different situations and still look appropriate.

The Ryde is a three-eyelet derby that’s also supremely comfortable. Made in versatile Tobacco suede, they look great with fresco trousers, chinos, or white denim.

Both shoes are made on Edward Green’s R1 sole, which is a slim rubber sole that’s lightweight and unobtrusive. Because these shoes are made by Edward Green, you get the comfort and casual style of unlined suede in addition to the classic silhouettes and supreme quality for which EG is known.

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.
