Well, not the Japanese, but the English seems to indicate it's a bison moc toe in tan. The sole is a bit exaggerated for my taste.

I asked my wife to help with finding some more information about the boots from that Japanese website,but it seems that they are out of stock. A search of Yahoo Japan didn't bring up anything either. Have you tried the U.S. Alden site? Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Nice looking boots though.

thanks for the help though. I've looked all over the net for a pair like this, and other than the pair at alden of carmel this is the only pair I've found. I own a couple of pairs of alden shoes, wingtips, and 6 inch boots, but I was looking for something less dressy.

Those aren't stock Aldens, they would have been a special order make-up for the store selling them. A number of stores like Alden of Carmel, The Shoemart and Leather Soul Hawaii do that in the USA. They have to place a minimum order but then are able essentially to design the shoe (last, leather, etc.). I know Leather Soul Hawaii currently has some shell cordovan Indy boots in production.

The upshot of all that is, unless you buy a pair from the store who special ordered it you won't be able to buy that shoe. To my understanding Alden does not do individual make-ups.
