[***SOLD***] Alden Black Horween Shell Cordovan Commando Sole Captoe Jumper Boots, 7.5 B/D

Shoe Size - US
8, 8.5
Universal Size
Alden Captoe Jumper boots in black Horween shell cordovan, with authentic Itshide Commando sole. Size 7.5, comparable to most US 8 or 8.5.

Mr. S, my employer purchased these from Leffot in NYC a few years ago. They retail for $800-850 new. We are asking $450. This pair is in great used condition. Horween Shell Cordovan is a very durable material made from a horse's hindquarters. It does not nick or cut easily, hence the surface is quite unblemished save for the expected scuffs one would expect from a pair of gently worn boots. The authentic ITSHIDE Commando soles were replaced at B.Nelson (Leffot's preferred cobbler in NYC) shortly before Mr. S stopped wearing black, so they are nearly new.

Mr. S says "These are smart boots, rugged and smart, and quite versatile. I have literally worn them to make a presentation to clients, then hiked up a mountain afterward without changing shoes."

Price includes Alden shoe trees and a tin of Alden black paste wax.

I removed the laces for the photos as they were a little worn. We can provide two pair of worn but working boot laces, one flat waxed and the other round waxed (for a slightly more technical / SWAT team look). The latter are very strong. If you are interested but only with new flat waxed laces provided, please advise and we can advise a price adjustment accordingly. Otherwise you can buy a pair of boot laces yourself!

Any questions, please contact me. If you would like a foot measurement from the previous wearer, please advise.
