Model：AF22 Plaza Plaint Toe Blucher (prod. code: 7M)
Size： 10 D
Shop：Alden of Carmel
This model has been originally introduced by Alden of Carmel in the fall of 1999. That was exactly the time when I started purchasing Alden shoes and I remember AoC dramatically changed their HP design that time.
I was much more interested in rare shell and I finally didn't purchase any Plaza last models but I remember AoC HP had a lot of Plaza last shoes released on their HP.
Well, I happened to learn through my friend that AoC was taking preorders of AF22. I already owned Plain Toe Blucher with commando sole, but I was quite interested in Plaza last Plain Toe and decided to place an order.
This shoe has a square long toe and wide-looking body. Antique edge sole which didn't exist in 1999 matches very well with dark burgundy shell cordovan. This model has a nice elegant look but commando sole adds massive image to its overall appearance that is really cool to me! :-)
