Yes, the Tremont is like a svelte version of the Barrie.

Those Atoms getting shown off look great. So the Atom is Alden's short wing, essentially? I like that it's on something other than the Barrie. Makes it distinctive.

Not exactly a short wing, but similar. Per leffot:

The Atom blucher was originally part of the Alden’s Foot Balance System made on the Truflare last (orthopedic line).

There are no 9D or 9.5D available in the #4 Atom. Just wanted to save someone the time and trouble of calling. frown.gif

I think the Atom is a poorly designed shoe. The line that goes from where the lace supports attach to the vamp is a strange feature that causes misbalance and a funny look.

I think it looks pretty cool - different from the longwing and the standard wingtip - here is another good example of the style

Alden makes a normal "wingtip" balmoral

And they will also do a "shortwing" in a special makeup that is very similar to the RL Marlows

I've only seem the "Atom" done for Leffot and Tassels - it is very similar to the Church's Grafton I posted earlier

The Obscura captoes also borrowed heavily from the old Atom (they basically but a captoe up front instead of a wingtip pattern)

Act fast, and you can get the Aldens off J Crew for 25% off. They allowed me to add them to cart, and 'HOLIDAY' still works even though the deadline has passed.

Barney's has a black shell chukka in 10.5 for $409 (formerly $555).

Is there any way to protect snuff suede from raw denim transfer?

I believe these are Atoms, here in snuff suede, crepe sole, Barrie last. Courtesy of Frans Boone. The price was higher than I would have liked (buy Aldens in the US), but I do like the shoes.
