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.

John Lobb Lopez and Edward

You can’t get any more classic than the Lopez loafer. Simply put, this shoe is an icon. Created in 1950, it is a simple and elegant shoe that’s been done up in Lobb’s beautiful dark brown suede. If you’re looking for something classic and unique, this is it.

The Edward is a slip-on made in Lobb’s beautiful black oxford calfskin. The outer skin and inner lining are cut from a single piece of leather that makes for a simple and elegant shoe that pairs well with anything from jeans to a sportcoat.

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.
