Alden Shoe – LS10 (LSW & LSDT)

10 years ago I followed my entrepreneurial dream and opened Leather Soul. Alden Shoe Company has been a focal point of my business from day 1. My first ever Leather Soul x Alden makeup was a plain toe blucher on the Leydon last with a storm welt and double leather sole. I offered it in cigar and black shell cordovan, later in color #8.

To commemorate my 10 year Anniversary I made that exact same shoe I made in 2004 but this time in ravello shell cordovan. Maybe for my 20th Anniversary I can offer it in whiskey shell cordovan?

Mahalo to everyone who supported me through this journey. I truly appreciate your aloha.

(At the time of this post, these shoes are SOLD OUT and unavailable for order.)

My Visit to Horween

On October 1st, 2014 I had the pleasure of visiting the Horween tannery in Chicago. It was truly an awe inspiring experience. To see first hand the entire process of creating a shell cordovan piece was simply incredible. The amount of work and detail involved in each shell is something you will never understand unless you visit the tannery. It has given me a greater appreciation of shell cordovan than I’ve ever had.

Mahalo to everyone at the Horween tannery, especially Nick Horween, for your hospitality and time.

(If you have any questions please leave them in the comment section and I will try my best to answer them.)
