Shoes

Alden Longwing Blucher

Vendor: JCrew
Model Number: 97504
Last: Barrie
Material: Ravello Shell Cordovan
Special: This is a truly special and one of a kind shoe. It was made for the JCrew Ludlow shop and features exposed Brass Eyelets. I call this pair the “Brassvello”. Note that there was not model number differentiation made for this pair from the traditional hidden eyelet model.
