I know these have been seen before, but I thought I would share some photos nonetheless. I am making my way across Europe and am now in Paris. I stopped by the shop French Trotters today. I have to say this is one of the best shops I have ever been in. They carry more streetwear than anything, but they have a fantastically edited collection and plenty to choose from.
Much to my pleasure they also had a decent selection of Alden shoes in both E and D widths. They had some great looking black shell Indy boots, but I ended up picking up this pair. They are a snuff suede longwing on the barrie last, with eyelets, antique edgetrim and a double waterlock leather sole. So, they are basically the JCrew version from what I can tell, but they come in the E width which I need and JCrew does not offer.
Here are some shots:
Also, I stopped by Anatomica. The customer service is superb. As most know, they focus primarily on the modified last and I just cannot make it work for me. In any case, it was certainly worth the visit.Edited by johnnyrich7 - 9/15/12 at 3:10pm
