Massachusetts shoemaker Alden has been a longtime collaborator with New York boutique Epaulet since the shop’s inception in 2008. They’ve made at least a dozen unique makeups for the shop and this fall they enter into gunboat territory!
Now we’re not talking about battleships, but heavyweight brogued wingtips. With a brown Chromexcel upper, a 360 degree Norwegian style Goodyear welt for complete protection against the elements, and a commando rubber sole these Innsbruck Longwings can get you through the harshest of fall and early winter terrain.
The shoes were made on Alden’s Barrie last, which runs about a half size larger than normal. Be sure to take that into account before taking your gunboats out on their maiden voyage. Available for $565 at Epaulet.
