This Norwegian Front Toe Blucher shoe is the premier Alden oxford shoe. It features a hand-butted seam which sets it apart, making it one of the most sought after models the Alden Shoe Company has ever designed. The process for making the upper for this style and placing it on the last is so difficult that there are only 2 or 3 highly trained hand-sewers that are tasked with this responsibility. The front of the shoe is actually a single piece of calfskin, not multiple pieces that are stitched. The operator uses one tool to pinch the leather forming a "seam" and then uses 2 needles to pierce the seam on opposite sides. Quite a work of art!
