    Where are these being created? and if you wouldn't mind sharing, how much does this cost both in time and money? I would love to have a pair made for me so I'm very curious.

    Why so much worry? It seems like shoes in this shape would go great with just about any kind of pants. You'll love'em.

    My husband's dream is to have his own cordovan shoes made. For now, he'll have to stick to his Alden's.

    Good luck!

    Scott speaking as An English guy who has been wearing cordovan's for longer than I remember I am so pleased to hear about your shoe's sole. the current trend for thick chunky soles really is unfortunate.

    Cordovan is the best color for shoes. It is elegant, versatile, and comes in a spectrum of beautiful shades. Please take a closeup of the leather.

    I think I would have played around with some ready-made Aldens before jumping in to custom design. But I give you credit for knowing what you want. And you're a lot braver than I.

    well, if he makes shoes as well as you take pictures, you have nothing to worry about ;). I think it's kind of cool too that your get your own personalized shoe.

    Some of my Alden's are made out of cordovan (horse leather) and the soles are thicker compared to calfskins. Isn't in the nature of cordovan shoes to be chunkier?
