Designed in the 1950s and virtually unchanged since then, this Shell Cordovan Longwing is lovingly called the "Gunboat." And with good reason - these shoes have serious heft, presence, and timeless style. The sturdy Double Leather sole is thick and substantial, and includes Alden's signature steel shank and natural cork filling for comfort & stability. The intricate brogueing runs along the entire length of the shoe - therefore giving it the name "Long Wingtip" or "Longwing." The upper is all genuine Horween Shell Cordovan - which is described in detail in the next section. With its substantial last and traditionally rounded toe, these shoes are excellent as dress or casual pieces. Many of our customers pair them with jeans and casual pants, and they especially shine with navy & charcoal wool suiting. Make no mistake - the Gunboat is a serious shoe, and will consistently polish up your outfits for years to come.
