Here's a lovely pair of Alden shoes that you can't even complain about only being available in Japan. In fact, they aren't available anywhere unless Mr. Wayne Pate decides to sell these. While many people often question why shops or Alden don't make this or that, or that it's too much to order from Japan, they still never order directly from Alden. Mr. Pate is not one of those people and he has now had a few personal orders come out looking very good. This suede long wing comes with the plantation sole is a great example of the subtle changes you can put together to have a very unique shoe. I love the colour and I'm really liking the choice of sole on the long wing. A classic American style, but really paired down made casual is just the sort of thing I love. These would look great with so many options of pants, now they just need some dry weather out east.
