The tassel loafer, a distinctly New England shoe, is an Alden creation from the 1950s, and has turned into a staple shoe that belongs in every man’s wardrobe. Summer loafing is easy in this pair, which we’ve made in ecru nubuck on oiled flex soles.
The Cooney is a comfortable and flexible boot that looks great with a variety of outfits. Its perforated cap toe and tapered last add to its formality, while the soft sage nubuck gives it a unique hue. It’s a masterpiece of a shoe named after one of our particularly discerning customers.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t wear white during winter. These cream nubuck longwings make for the perfect casual look this season. The red micro soles make the shoes very lightweight, and combined with the cream nubuck, they’re soft and comfortable straight from the box. We’re fans of winter white because it keeps everyone else on their toes, and these longwings are unexpected enough to do just that.
Nubuck is suede’s under appreciated cousin. The one difference between them is that suede is created from the inner side of the cowhide, while nubuck is created from the outer. This results in a fine, velvety, soft appearance without the nap of suede. Its a look that’s perfect for spring and summer shoes.
Our new Cherwell chukka boot comes in Sage Nubuck, a wonderfully dynamic and beautiful shade that deserves more attention than it gets. This shoe will be perfect for casual wear: its comfortable and not overly formal, but it will always look great wearing it.
