While Winn Perry's first Alden special make ups captured my eye, and my wallet, their second pair has just arrived in shop. The "Little Tanks" are the latest version of the high Blucher boot by Alden and are based on Pershing Trench Boots issued to US soldiers in 1918, which they attempted to waterproof the boots themselves with beef tallow. The heavily oiled reverse chamois leather is complimented nicely by the plantation crepe sole with and the leather toe. The boots are built to last the rain, hail, sleet and snow and are a very nice combination of Jordan's taste and Alden's wonderful footwear craftsmanship. You can find them now at Winn Perry.
