Alden Traditional Saddle Oxford
We are proud to offer Alden's classic traditional Saddle Shoe, styled in genuine Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan. This classic shoe is styled on the classic Barrie last and features Goodyear welt construction, a flat welt, matched edge trim, blind eyelets, and single oak soles.
Shell Cordovan is a very durable, non-porous leather which ages beautifully over time and requires minimal maintenance. Simply wipe down with a damp cloth and occasionally brush with a horse hair brush and your shell cordovan should last you for years and years.
Often imitated, but never duplicated, Alden's reputation as master craftsmen of shell cordovan is rightly deserved and shines through gloriously on the Saddle Shoe styling.
Irrespective of fashion trends that come and go, the Saddle Shoe has been a wardrobe staple of discerning gentlemen since the 1920s. Wear these for an modern look with raw selvedge denim, or go the traditional route and pair these with a classic seersucker trouser.
The "Barrie" last runs approximately one-half size big. We recommend that you order one half size smaller than your typical dress shoe size.
We are happy to answer any questions you have on styling, features, or sizing.
