The long wing blucher from Alden has been a classic for over 60 years. New to their stock lineup is the 976 in dark brown calf, previously only available as a special make-up model. 

Extremely versatile, and built to last, this is an essential shoe for your wardrobe, going from Monday morning to Friday night with ease.

The double leather waterlock sole is both weather proof, due to heavy oiling, and very comfortable compared to a standard leather sole.

These are built on the Barrie last, which is a very generous last in both width and length. Generally, folks take one full size down from their typical shoe size in this last, or 1/2 size down from boot size.

If you need help with sizing, please contact us and we can help you determine the best fit for you. Both D and E widths are available in sizes 6 through 13, with B widths being available in 8 through 13.
