Alden for Winn Perry No. 97786 (Double Waterlock Longwing)
Price: $550
Anticipated delivery: January 2015

An American classic, from an American icon. Crafted simply from Walnut Brown Calf, this shoe is made Portland friendly through the use of Alden's double waterlock oiled leather sole. The oiled double leather sole does not allow water to penetrate into its pores, a cause for premature aging of leather soles. The addition of the double waterlock makes this American classic that much more versatile in the Pacific NW.

Fit tip: The Barrie last fits one half size large, compared to standard US sizing. Take your measured foot size and go down one half size. For fit questions, please contact us:sales@winnperry.com.

Alden for Winn Perry No. 40023 (Workman Oxford)
Price: $535
Anticipated delivery: January 2015

This ruggedly styled mocc toe from Alden is based on the #40 pattern, or low cut Indy. Featuring a more supportive 6 eyelet blucher lacing pattern, this pattern locks your heel back inside the counter, providing a great amount of comfort. Made from Horween Chromexcel leather uppers, this shoe has a distinctive look of hand made imperfection, that will develop a rich patina over time. The addition of Alden's signature double waterlock sole provides the handsome looks of a leather sole and makes this model friendlier for the soggy Portland streets. 

Fit tip: The Trubalance last fits one half size large, compared to standard US sizing. Take your measured foot size and go down one half size. For fit questions, please contact us:sales@winnperry.com.

Alden for Winn Perry No. 45193H (Little Tanks)
Price: $550
Anticipated delivery: January 2015

The Reverse Chamois Boots, or Little Tanks, are Winn Perry's all weather boot. The Horween oiled chamois leather is turned to its roughout side for ease of care and wear tolerance. As soon as you beat up these boots, clean them out, oil them, and brush them – they will be no worse for wear. The addition of Alden's natural plantation crepe sole increases the Little Tanks' comfort and weatherproofing. The crepe sole is waterproof, not to mention, extremely durable and comfortable for those standing or walking long distances during their day.

Fit Tip: The Barrie last fits one half size large, compared to standard US sizing. Take your measured foot size and go down one half size. For fit questions, please contact us:sales@winnperry.com.

Alden 97873C Natural Chromexcel Longwing

 

An American classic, from an American icon. Alden makes longwings better than anyone. This shoe is no exception. Crafted from Horween Natural Chromexcel, this shoe is made Portland friendly through the use of Alden's double leather and commando sole. The commando sole is waterproof and nonslip, making it ideal in the Pacific NW. Made on the Barrie last, these shoes also feature a decorative 360 degree reverse welt, painted brown brass eyelets, full leather linings, natural cork insole, full heel counters and steel shank through the arch for long lasting comfort and support.

 

 

Alden shoes are Goodyear Welted to provide years of use. Goodyear Welt construction allows your footwear to be resoled several times through the use of a strip of leather by which the sole is attached after the welt is stitched to the shoe.

 

Fit tip: The Barrie last fits one half size large, compared to standard US sizing. Take your measured foot size and go down one half size. Stock is only available in D widths. For fit questions, please contact us: sales@winnperry.com.

Alden 40716H Double Waterlock Captoe Boot

Inspired by another pair of British bench made boots, our second version of the Alden Double Waterlock Captoe Boot this season comes in a rich brown pebble grain calf. Other distinguishing details from the earlier version are a regular all around welt and the addition of a heel pull tab, which really makes the diamond cut back stay stand out from Alden's traditional square top back stay.

Brown metal eyelets with speed hooks, light antique finish on the edge of sole and welt and Alden's new old stock hard rubber "Starburst" heels also set this boot apart and add an another level of traction and comfort. Of course it wouldn't be a Winn Perry boot without a little weather resistance and the signature Double Waterlock oiled leather sole pairs with the rest of the boot handsomely and increases the lifespan of your leather sole on wet surfaces.

Made to Alden New England standards, these boots feature full leather linings, natural cork insole, full heel counters and steel shank through the arch for lasting comfort and support.

Fit tip: The Barrie last fits one half size large compared to standard US sizing. Take your measure foot size and go down one half size. Stock is only available in D widths. For fit questions, please contact us: sales@winnperry.com.

Alden 73030 Ranger Mocc

The traditional American country walking shoe. These moccs are hansomely crafted in smooth tobacco Horween Chamois leather. Horween Chamois is a heavily oiled leather and handles the Northwest climate beautifully. It seems that the out side has received deserved attention lately, but the smooth side is equally enticing.

A hand sewn mocc toe and unique quarter construction give these shoes a tim-honored New England look. The addition of the natural plantation crepe rubber sole enhances the New England feel, while providing extreme comfort, durability, and a waterproof base. The Van last provides a comfortable platform for the shoe and feels right at home with the hand sewn toe. Pair them with jeans, chinos or corduroys for a classic, casual American style.

Other details include a regular 360 welt, brown metal eyelets, and flat wax laces. Made to Alden New England standards, these shoes feature full leather linings, natural cork insole, full heel counters and steel shank through the arch for lasting comfort and support.

Re-stock Alden Tobacco Reverse Chamois Boots

Last Fall when we rolled out the "Little Tanks" as they were dubbed, I gave the story of their military inspiration and the idea behind their function.  After months of use they have lived up to their billing, in my opinion, as being a knock around boot that can withstand the constantly wet Winter and Spring that Portland offers up each year.  Most recently, the weather has put them through their paces and they have handled beautifully as I walk my dog in the morning through the downpour of precipitation that ended up flooding the creek by our house.  The only thing that's left dry when this happens is my feet. 

After these times, I let the boots rest for the next day, brush them and dub them with a bit of leather dressing every couple of soaks or as needed and they are no worse for wear.  Alden's plantation crepe sole is extremely comfortable and hard wearing, not to mention waterproof and the Horween oiled reverse chamois leather just doesn't seem to age, even after being soaked many times and becomes more comfortable with each wearing.

Alden for Winn Perry No. 45193 H ("Little Tanks")
Features: Built to Alden New England standards, Horween oiled tobacco
reverse chamois leather, agatine eyes and hooks, flat wax cotton laces, 360 regular
welt w/ light antique finish, plantation crepe sole w/ leather tip, full leather linings,
natural cork insole, triple ridged steel shank, unique diamond cut backstay
Last: Barrie (runs 1/2 size larger than standard US sizing)
Sizes: 8.5D, 9D, 9.5D, 10D, 10.5D
Price: $425
