By now you've probably heard of New England shoemaker Alden. They've been making quality brougues, bluchers, boots and loafers for centuries. And thanks to companies like J.Crew, they've been enjoying a newfound popularity. This San Francisco store is one of the company's few independent outposts, and is a great place to learn about the company's history, the benefits of Cordovan leather or simply to talk shop with knowledgeable shoe salesmen.
Do your Aldens need a new lease on life? Bring them into the store to get a factory refurbishing.
