In conjunction with our Alden trunk show yesterday in Chicago, we previewed several new models that will be available for pre-order tomorrow, November 18. However we also have two models in stock for purchase now. Shop online or in our Chicago store.
Alden x Leffot Dearborn Boot
We named these boots after Chicago’s Dearborn Street, where the Monadnock Building and our Chicago store are found. They’re made on the Plaza last in tobacco chamois with commando soles, the perfect winter combination if there ever was one. Wear them with nearly anything for a sharp, smart look.
Features: Plaza Last, Tobacco Chamois, Commando Soles
Alden x Leffot Longwing
Made with a textured black calfskin and durable, comfortably soft crepe soles, this Alden longwing is a shoe that perfectly straddles the line between casual and dressed up. Wear it with jeans, khakis, or any number of dress slacks.
Longwings have been around for years because they’re classic and versatile. They are time tested and proven and belong in every wardrobe. Fashion goes in and out of style but classic is forever.
Features: Barrie Last, Black Alpine Graine Calfskin, Plantation Crepe Soles
Our PT boot is a combination of a number of our favorite Alden things: shell cordovan, the Barrie last, commando soles, brass eyelets, and a plain toe. All told, these boots are extremely comfortable and stylish. They’re a super wearable boot and go with just about anything from jeans to a sport coat.
Because they’re made with Horween shell cordovan and lugged commando soles, they are as much at home on a hike as they are out to dinner. And did we mention they’re an instant classic?
To commemorate our first anniversary in Chicago, we’ve made this boot in color 8 shell cordovan and dark brown Regina calf. They’re named after Dearborn Street, where our home in the Monadnock building is located.
As part of our anniversary celebration, a pair of shoe trees is included with each pair of boots.
Features: Hampton Last, Color 8 Shell Cordovan and Dark Brown Regina, Single Flex Welt Soles

We will host trunk shows with Saint Crispin’s at our Chicago and New York locations. Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. While that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.
The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which means the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling your foot’s natural resting position.
The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers, and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 12 weeks.

Monkstraps come in all shapes and sizes. This week we’re featuring a selection from Edward Green, Alfred Sargent, John Lobb, and Corthay.
A selection of rare shell cordovan colors are now available as part of our Pre-owned program, in limited sizes.
Shell cordovan is ideal for making beautiful, enduring footwear, and our friends at Alden of New England have perfected its use. One of the ways they’ve done this is by using shells tanned only by Horween Leather Company in Chicago, Illinois. Add to that a group of rare colors and you have a very special combination.
