We’ll never stop creating different Alden specials because not only does it mean the world to us, to have created such an amazing relationship with such an amazing brand, but we truly LOVE the outcome of the boots we see as a result. We’ve got 3 new special make-ups and here’s what went into them.
A plain toe boot is a must. It creates a completely different look – bolder, more assertive. It feels like a boot that does not compromise. The beauty of the leather and crepe sole only compliment the strong silhouette that is the Plain Toe boot. Alden does a masterful job, with this particular pair sitting on a Barrie last.
We rarely see suede as beautiful as what we have now in the Snuff Suede Indy boot. Proper suede is like a tall glass of ice water on a hot summer day – refreshing – because too often we see poor, low quality, versions. It makes an immeasurable difference to the look and feel of the boot. It also gives a sense of texture, complimented beautifully by the subtle roughness of the crepe sole. This one is truly a banger.
The Cordovan Indy boot is simply no joke. It’s a serious looking boot. We’re not sure whether it’s the Commando sole or the Cordovan leather but it’s probably a mixture of both. Taking this silhouette and adding these two components adds an element of boss that is unique to this boot and this boot only! We call it “The Great Canadian Indy Boot”.
