Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation and is the oldest shoemaker in New England (we’ve been long-time fans of its craftsmanship and attention to detail). They handcrafted these bluchers, or wing tips, in genuine shell cordovan leather—known for its shiny finish, durability and flexibility, it requires a time-consuming production method, but the result is a far superior leather. They’re finished with a Goodyear welt, which means you can resole them again and again for a lifetime of wear.
