Alden - Handsewn Leisure Moccasin
in number 8 shell cordovan
DETAILS: Built on the Van last with a hand sewn moc toe this penny loafer comes in either black or number 8 shell cordovan from Chicago's famous Horween leather company. You will find a full leather lining, leather insole, leather out-sole, cork mid-sole, long wearing rubber dovetail heels with leather inserts, true Goodyear welt construction, and steel shank for long lasting comfort and support.
