Alden x Blackbird: Black Sheep Squadron Airman Shoe

Another mash-up featuring Seattle’s Blackbird retail shop and New England’s Alden shoe company. This time, the duo’s taken inspiration from the simple black dress shoes of standard military dress. “The name itself comes from Baa Baa Blacksheep, a TV series that aired on NBC from 1976 to 1978. As a child born on Pearl Harbor day, our owner, Nicole, loved to watch the show with her father, and marked every birthday with WWII film marathons. A lifelong devotee of Army Navy surplus store shopping, it was a natural choice for Nicole, when it came time to design our Alden collaboration models, to reference the military look and feel she had grown up appreciating.”
