    I just have been notified that the Alden store in San Francisco will be receiving a batch of the Longwing Bluchers in the beautiful and elusive Cigar Shell Cordovan in about 2 weeks!

    To my knowledge the shoes are on the Barrie last (as seen in the picture above) and will have the double leather sole (unlike the ones in the picture above)

    Reserve a pair today... they will probably go fast.


    Any idea what sizes will be available?

    ^ Very nice, Morgan. Rust suede + semi-brogue boot + Modified last + not a special order = like winning some kind of shoe lottery.

    Call Shoe Mart and ask what they have in your size. They get all of Alden's seconds.

    Shoe Mart is your friend. Too bad they don't ship to Canada.

    Alden for Epaulet. The Officer's Indy Boot.
    Brown Horween Chromexel upper. Tru-Balance last. Double Leather sole.

    Officer's Indy Boot: $450

    We're thrilled to announce our second exclusive Alden style - the "Officer's Indy Boot." Using Alden's beloved Indy shape and comfortable Tru-Balance last, we added a Double Leather dress sole, self-colored stitching on the moc toe and welt, and flat waxed laces. The upper is done in Horween's rich brown Chromexel leather. The sturdy Double Leather sole is thick and substantial, and includes Alden's signature steel shank and natural cork filling for comfort & stability.

    Great with jeans, solid with wool trousers, and absolutely perfect with chinos, the Officer's Indy has an old-school look and subtle antiqued appearance. It's a dressier take on the classic Indy, but still an easy item to wear casually. We envisioned a boot that could be worn by a WWII officer - something tough and rugged, but still refined enough for uniform inspection. 12 units were produced.
