Alden has arguably become the world’s most known maker of fine shoes. Their long lineage, filled with numerous design innovations, forms much of the basis for American footwear.
The Leisure Handsewn (or LHS) penny loafer is a perennial favorite of ours. This version, made up in Brown Chromexcel (the leather used for Alden Indy boots), is made to be a true workhorse. The hard-wearing uppers can take just about anything that's thrown their way, while the combination of a natural cork footbed, unlined toe and Flex Welt sole add an unprecedented level of comfort, rivaling your favorite pair of sneakers.
The classic design and character of the leather make these extremely versatile. They look great dressed up with a suit, but perfectly at home with chinos, denim and corduroy. We love penny loafers and think this workboot-inspired version is just about perfect.
The Van last runs approximately one half-size big, we recommend sizing down one half-size (E.g - US 9 = US 8 1/2)
