    For your consideration is a beautiful pair of Alden Color 8 Shell Cordovan Leisure Hand-Sewn Moccasin (Model 986), crafted in November 2013. They are a size 8.5D and shaped over the Van last. These shoes were purchased new for US$680.

    They have been gently worn about 12-15 times but they don’t fit my narrow heels and wide forefoot properly. I inserted heel pads to try and improve the fit but unfortunately, I have recognized that the shoe just doesn’t work for me (I can remove the heel pads prior to shipping if you request). They were worn in rotation and always kept in shoe trees (shoe trees not included in the sale). These shoes are a beautiful burgundy color (unlike some of the darker color 8 you'll see coming out of Alden these days) and will age fantastically. As you can see from the pictures, the heels and soles have plenty of life left too!

    For reference, I wear: Alden Barrie 8.5D, Tricker's 4537 8UK, Edward Green 202/606 8UK, Carmina Detroit 8UK, Crockett & Jones 335 8UK
