One of America's oldest and finest shoe makers, Alden, had been the purveyor of fine mens dress shoes since 1884. Alden produces some of the most classic models of mens shoes, ranging from oxfords to brogues to slip-ons with well balanced proportions and sturdy, top quality leather. The Unlined Chukkah from Alden is a wonderful classic summer addition to any shoe closet as it can be worn without socks, thus goes chicly with cotton twill shorts and rolled-up chinos. The Chukkah is made with a tan suede leather upper with single, flexible, oiled leather out soles. The insides are fully leather lined, and Alden offers maintenance services so the wearer can get his Alden resoled again and again, as the upper ages beautifully with wear. The Unlined Chukkah is now available through Blackbird.
