    To Whom It May Concern:

    Are these available in size 12B?

    Also, can you recommend a good shoe shiner in San Diego who can handle cordovan? The guy to whom I’ve been taking my calfskin shoes does a good job but has basically effed up my Alden cordovans. I think they’re salvageable but I want to scream.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hey Rod,

      Unfortunately, these shoes are an Old Stock shoe and was likely made by Alden over 20 years ago. In my over ten years of actively shopping and tracking Alden, I have never seen a model that resembles this.

      I am sorry to hear about your Shoe Shine woes! I honestly just shine my shoes myself, so I am not the best recommender of shiners. I would think that some of the most reputable cobblers would have the knowledge to properly shine or restore Shell Cordovan.

      I really like Ah One and Bedos Leatherworks, both in Virgina, as well as LaRossa in Massachusetts but personally.

      Hope that helps!

    I just bought this similar pair of old Alden Offshore deck shoes – though not in that nice condition, or white calfskin!
