The problem with Alden is that they won’t be a special make up individually. Only large orders.
If you’re looking for shell cordovan, however, you might be a bit more limited. You could try Allen Edmonds. Given their recent QC issues I’d be wary. An option nonetheless.
Rancourt is a great American company and they can accommodate made to order:
Based in Lewiston, Maine, Rancourt and Company crafts handmade, custom leather shoes for men and women, from loafers, boots, and boat shoes to moccasins.www.rancourtandcompany.com
If you want to level up and go English, both Crockett & Jones and Edward Green can do MTO shell cordovan but it will cost you well north of $1000. In the case of EG, closer to $2k.
