What a year it’s been for loafers! Long gone are the days when they may have been considered stodgy or silly pieces to own. It took time, but the cool kids finally accepted the loafer as a footwear essential.
If loafers are an essential, than the most essential essential is the Alden Leisure Handsewn Loafer. The Alden company didn’t invent the penny loafer style, but they’ve had an indelible influence on the history of the shoe. Their Shell Cordovan offerings are world-famous, especially this shade: the Color 8. Lost & Found‘s interpretation of this classic is set upon the brand’s Van last, with a moc-toe, and a Goodyear welt with antique edge. Handmade in the USA, this is simply a classic.
An unbeatable and perhaps end-tier loafer, the Alden Shell Cordovan is a sight to see.
Available for $975 CAD (~$760 USD) at Lost & Found
