The Color #4 Cap Toe Boot
What is THE ultimate Alden Boot? Ask different people and you will obviously get different answers. But not too many will question you if you state the Color #4 Cap Toe Boot. A ridiculous shade of Horween’s prized Shell Cordovan, check. A beautiful shade of shell paired with Alden’s tan “antique” edges, check. Timeless design, check. Alden’s classic Barrie Last, check.Exclusivity beyond measure, check. This Boot hits all the marks.
The Color #4 Cap Toe Boot was a gem made by Alden exclusively for TheShoeMart back in 2012. It has yet to be remade on any last for any other vendor. The color on this Boot is just amazing. Its a medium brown with a strong reddish tone. Like it’s Wingtip brother, it has the same re-stitched split-reverse welt that goes all 360 degrees around the Boot and Double Leather Outsole. These Boots are a work of art.

How can I get my hands on a pair?
Unfortunately, to this date, only one limited run has ever been made of this particular model. Hopefully someone will make them again someday!
