Alden Shell Cordovan Hiding as Regular Leather

Hiding in plain site on Etsy, a pair of Alden black shell cordovan tassel loafers, number 664.

Mislabeled as “leather,” these shell cordovans look like they are just back from Alden Restoration, especially when looking at the black bottom soles with almost unworn paint. Size 10D, which I do not wear. Asking price $99.
