Alden and Blackbird“>Blackbird have hooked up again to produce a masterful example of footwear. By taking the Alden summer oxford model and applying the a wax treated reversed tobacco shaded leather to the upper the shoe is given great charecter and an interesting juxtaposition between rugged and class. The slimmed oxford bolds well for the summer heat as the unlined leather shoe is meant to be worn with or without socks but without sacrifice to comfort and wearability to their beloved owner. A beautiful crafted piece from a seemingly perfect partnership between brand, Alden and retailer Blackbird.
