For your consideration a lightly used pair of Alden captoe blucher made built for Brooks Brothers. Made on double leather outsole, matching flat welt and dark edge trim. Outsoles are in great condition, with minor heel drag. Made with very high quality shell cordovan pieces with a tight smooth surface. Evidenced by high shine that achieved with just few moments of brushing. Rubber topy added to extend life of outsole and for added traction. Uppers are in great condition with only a few superficial markings. Made using high quality #8 shell cordovan (notice the lack of blemishes in the leather when held up to the light), open-lacing style, and a straight captoe. This model retails $714 new from Alden. Tagged a size US11.5, D width. Appears to be made on the Snap last and fits true to size. Please refer to measurements.

Outsole Measurements: 12 7/8 x 4 3/8"
