We are proud to offer Alden's classic Dover plain toe blucher, styled in genuine Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan. The Dover blucher is styled on the Barrie last and features Goodyear welt construction, a pre-stitched 360 degree reverse welt, antique welt and edge trim, blind eyelets, and double leather oak soles. The plain toe styling beautifully shows off the luster of the shell cordovan, while the antique edge trim and welt give the shoe an extra pop.
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 plain toe blucher styling.
The "Barrie" last runs approximately one-half size big. We recommend that you order one half size smaller than your usual dress shoe size.
We are happy to answer any questions you have on styling, features, or sizing. Alden shoes have been made in the USA since 1884.
