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. Their plain toe blucher, or PTB, is the style that we can really sink our teeth into. This shoe alone has become the standard by which all others are judged.
Lending itself to just about any application, the snuff suede and soft, unlined toebox tone down the formality, resulting in an air of casualness paired with a more conservative look. The natural cork footbed and Flex Welt sole add an unprecedented level of comfort, rivaling your favorite pair of sneakers.
Give these a shot and you’ll understand exactly why we love ‘em and how Alden became the authority on the PTB.
The Barrie last runs approximately one half-size big, we recommend sizing down one half-size (E.g - US 9 = US 8 1/2)
