Many of our customers consider these the be the "perfect black shoe" and their single most versatile piece of footwear. Crafted in rich Horween shell cordovan, the black upper has a natural shine to it. This makes it an excellent dress shoe and an appropriate black tie shoe as well. Black shell requires very little polishing, so the shine stays without a lot of fuss.

But - given its comfortable Barrie last, rounded toe, and sturdy double-leather sole - it's an excellent casual piece as well. It looks great with denim, chinos, and corduroy pants. Not to mention, Alden's signature steel shank and natural cork filling in the midsole means that you can comfortably wear these all day long. If you need a solid black shoe in your closet, we enthusiastically submit this as the most versatile style that we've ever encountered
And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.
There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.
