Finest leather + shoemaker = Alden!

If you love selvedge denim and follow forums like Superfuture and StyleForum, you’ve probably already heard the shoemaker company, Alden! They are the fine classic shoemaker from New England, and they┬árepresent more than a century-old tradition of craftsmanship! My Alden obsession came just a little over a year ago. After reading other forums and blogs for sometimes, I began to appreciate Alden more and more! I’ve learnt a lot from other people, who also love Alden. The fine Horween calf (cowhide) and shell cordovan (horsehide) leathers in light brown shades are just speechless…I went to try them and got my first pair at Unionmade. They carry great goods there. My first pair is the Alden x Unionmade Indy shoes in natural chromexcel leather. When I saw the natural chromexcel leather, I’ve never seen anything quite like it! They go so well with selvedge denim and remain to be my favorite. More importantly, they feel VERY comfy on my feet. There’s nothing I feel more appreciated to wear on my feet than Alden now.
