BOOT OF THE DAY | #184 | ALDEN x FRANS BOONE SADDLE SHOE TOBACCO CHAMOIS SNUFF SUEDE

so, definitely: this is the nicest, coolest and at the same time smartest saddle shoe i ever saw. respect to FRANS BOONE who did this awesome piece together with ALDEN. i think this style, this combination in design and leathers must be really exclusive – at least i never saw before. this ALDEN shoe features the following characteristics: snuff suede saddle and heel part, vamp and quarters in reversed tobacco chamois, brass eyelets, cordo hyde flat laces, plantation crepe outsole, barrie last D width. it would be an amazing, awesome part of my boot & shoe collection, but the price is the price an ALDEN costs. so my rationality is fighting against the passion. it’s an exciting match! wonderful pics | © FRANS BOONE
