Two Alden pre-orders are now available. Both are the popular Tanker model. One pair is in Horween’s color 8 shell cordovan, and the other is in tobacco chamois, which is an oiled nubuck that’s great for foul weather. Stock sizes in these shoes are available to purchase online. We’re also accepting requests for non-stock sizes by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are currently accepting pre-orders for the next delivery of the Alden x Leffot Longwing in Color 8 Shell Cordovan with an antique edge and the Alden x Leffot Tanker Boots in Color 8 Shell Cordovan. Arrival is “anticipated” in the first half of 2014, however it may be longer.
Pre-orders will be done in two stages. Stock D and E widths can be ordered with a non-refundable, non-transferable 20% deposit through our online shop. You will be contacted once the shoes arrive for final payment.
Sizes that are not available on our pre-order page can be requested by contacting us via email at email@example.com by Monday, August 19th. We will advise you if Alden can make a pair in your requested size.

Alden of New England has perfected the use of shell cordovan in making the LWB. One of the ways they do that is by using cordovan tanned only by Horween Leather Company in Chicago, Illinois. It is with this cordovan that we designed our Color 8 Longwing Blucher made expressly for Leffot.
The Alden Tanker aka NST boot in Horween Color 8 shell cordovan is an incredibly beautiful, versatile, and durable shoe. With commando soles and handsewn split toe, it’s both aesthetically pleasing and highly practical. Wear these with anything from jeans to a sport coat, and you’ll look sharp and comfortable year round.
One year to the day we’ve re-issued one of our most popular and versatile Alden x Leffot boots. Our Tanker or NST (Norwegian Split Toe) in Horween Color 8 shell cordovan is simply one of those styles that have mass appeal and why?
Maybe because the deep rich color of the shells combined with the antiqued edge commando soles and old fashioned handsewn vamp is timeless.
