Alden Shoe CompanyEstablished 1884
Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company manufactures classic gentlemen’s footwear. Alden stands for traditional, custom shoemaking at its finest. Most of the company’s workers are second or third generation. Each pair of Alden shoes is handworked from the finest leathers sourced from small tanneries in Europe and the U.S. Its shell cordovan comes from the last such tannery in America, Horween Leather Company.
Having been worn by Harrison Ford in the ‘Indiana Jones’ films, the Alden 405 boot is also known as the ‘Indy’ boot. The Indy is a classic ankle-height work boot style, with a contrast stitched toe. It has a goodyear welted outsole and a stacked sole with a rubber heel for enhanced comfort and durability. An iconic model.
