Try Shoemart. They have a huge inventory of Alden shell cordovan and as far as I know, are the only establishment that is sanctioned by Alden to retail seconds. Therefore, Shoemart receives many of the one-off shoes made on special order that did not pass the QC process. Recently, I purchased a few shell cordovan boots and as picky as I am, the inperfections were minor and certainly made up for in the doscounted price.....usually at about one-half retail. Call or email and work with Marta Knezevic.http://www.theshoemart.com

I still remember vividly the first time I visited Shoemart, I truly felt like an adolescent in a candy store..........perhaps time to visit again.
