Offered is a really unique pair of Aldens that were made for a retailer who has since gone out of business. Highly unlikely that these will be offered again. Alden calls it a Fullstrap slip on. I would describe it as a whole-cut as there is no stiching on the vamp of the shoe. It is a unique and sleek design. As a bonus, check the family shot with my chukkas and AoM monks. You'll get a feel for how light these are for a traditional color 8. I've never owned a color 6 but these are definitely lighter than all of my color 8's. Next to last pic is a family shot with my color 8 chukkas and AoM monks to illustrate how much lighter these shoes are. Shoe goes equally well as business casual or with denim/chino's. They are my most stylish casual shoe but unfortunately they are a little snug for my 8.5D Barrie feet. Shoes have less than 10 wears and were topy'd after 3-4 wears. They are in excellent condition with minimal scuffs and rolls. Also, check the last pic as it includes a really nice pair of Marlow's and Brooks Brothers wingtips that I'm also selling.
