NEW Alden 975 Longwing - US 9E - #8 Cordovan

This is a pair of brand new Alden Shell Cordovan Longwings.
The iconic American "Gunboats" - made in the U.S.

I am selling this pair because I need to go up half a size. So I am trying to cut my losses, in order to repurchase them in the right size.
The shoes have only been worn when I tried them on in the store, aswell as once when I came home. In both cases it was on a carpet, so there is no sign of wear on the soles.

The Longwings are made on Alden's "Barrie" last, which run large in the size.
US size is 9 C/E - which means that they have a medium width heel (C), and a wider forefoot (E).

The measurements are:

Length (Heel to toe): 31,7 CM / 12,5 inches
Width (widest part of the forefoot): 11,4 CM / 4,5 inches.

The original store price was 6999,- Danish Kroner - which is equal to £ 667,- / € 938,- / $ 1043,-

The price I am asking for is £ 473,- / € 671,- / $ 740,-

The usual retail price on various online stores within the E.U. is about £ 595,- / € 838,- / $ 924,-

Remember - these are still brand new!

Free standard shipping within the E.U.

Feel free to contact me for more information.
