We made a trip down to the Chicago Collective today – there was lots worth seeing (and plenty not worth seeing…). We spent some time talking with Floyd, Barry, and Bob of Alden Shoe.
The Plain Toe in Natural was easily my favorite object of the day, uncompromising bias aside. There were a few new boot offerings and another version of the plain toe in brown.
The boot on the right is yet to be named, and it is shown two ways – one with a black Vibram sole and the other with a white Vibram wedge sole. Another look at the Utica Boot here.
