Alden Double Waterlock Longwing (97786)
An American classic, from an American icon. Alden makes longwings better than anyone. This shoe is no exception. 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. Made on the Barrie last, these shoes also feature a decorative 360 degree reverse welt, 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
