These are my new Alden penny loafers in Genuine Horween shell cordovan, color 8. I haven’t worn penny loafers for such a long time; I forgot what I’ve been missing. An easy comfortable fit, and classic styling, I’m particularly attracted to the hand sewn moc toes.
These are on the Van last, which like the Barrie is nice and round allowing plenty of room in the toe box. I can’t wait to get these nice and creased; it’s one of the things I love about shell cordovan.

Fall is in the air and wing tips are on my mind, apparently I’m not alone. There’s been a sudden spike in the number of clients looking for classic full brogues with double soles. I wear a couple of these models; I find them to be both versatile and classic. Here’s the line up.

Nothing says Alden more than Shell Cordovan, they are the largest producer of shell cordovan shoes in the United States if not the world. Our newest addition is the 9901 Plain Toe Blucher in black shell cordovan on double leather Goodyear welted soles.
These shoes are on the Alden Barrie Last, which runs about a full size larger than your American foot size. A great shoe that gets better over time.
Kind of like Police Dress Shoe meets School Uniform Shoe……
