I'm sure some people have noticed my recent excitement over the online Ark store. Upon further exploration it's even better than I first thought. There are actually several stores within the site that each cater to slightly different brands and markets - all tied together by dopeness. I will try to settle down on taking everything from a store that is quite pricey and in Japanese. But before I do I thought I would post these beauties that American shoe maker, Alden, put together specifically for Ark. The company has been around since 1884 and have since perfected their craft. These suede moc toe boots are a pretty good example of that. The balance of the boot is spot on with a very nice sole, perfect stitching, a gorgeous color of suede and even a pretty nice looking shoe box. The stamp on the insole is a perfectly branded spot so that it doesn't take away from the boot, but relates how special and strong the collaboration is. These would be a good replacement for Redwings if you ever needed one.
