The Alden Workman Oxford is based on the #40 pattern, also know as the the low cut Indy. This pattern features a more supportive 6 eye blucher lacing pattern, locking your heel back inside the counter and 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. Distinguishing details of this model include a flat 360 welt with natural finish and a white stitch. 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.
