Alden x Leffot Brown Chromexcel Longwing

Alden’s Longwing Blucher is a classic for a reason. It is one of the most versatile dress shoes you can find, floating through a wide range of occasions. It’s versatility allows for a swath of variations. This version comes in soft and supple brown chromexcel leather, flexible double waterlock soles, and agatine eyelets, a significantly more rugged and casual take on the classic.

One can choose to treat this shoe as either a casual or dress shoe. Use Montana Pitch Blend’s waxy leather dressing to protect it from the rain and keep the leather soft or use Saphir Renovateur and Wax Polish to dress them up and polish to a high gloss. Either way, they’ll look great for years.
