Although these might seem like an obvious choice for some people, it's taken me a little while to warm up to the Cordovan leather, especially if its not on a plain toe blucher, wing tip or long wing. Two good things I like and know are great. but rarely ever wear are chukka boots and Cordovan leather. So I'm not sure these would immediately become a high rotation shoe, but the combination of what I feel is a very classy, elegant leather and a more casual boot model are definitely done best by Alden, and I'm more into it now than I have been. However I'm not too into spending the money this minute, or trying to track them down in this exact colorway (since these ones from Japan are sold out), but I would like to put some miles into them.
