Alden Fan Feature: @Feylanks

 @feylanks Instagram Photo: Alden Black Shell Cordovan Indy Boot

Hey Alden Army!

Today’s fan feature of Alden shoes out in the wild comes from Instagram user @feylanks. This awesome shot was taken in the Alphabet City neighborhood of Manhattan’s East Village and features an Alden Indy boot in Black Shell Cordovan with a Commando Sole. You can see the image on Instagram here or you can scroll down to the embedded view at the bottom of the page. We love the lighting and the way it picks up on these boots!

Our current Black Shell Cordovan Alden Indy Boot is Style #40569C on the Alden TruBalance Last with Commando soles and heels. It has traditional Alden Indy boot stitching, including the moccasin toe detail. We think the genuine black shell cordovan leather on this make-up makes the classic, rugged Alden Indy work-boot silhouette look just a bit sleeker and adds versatility.  The Alden TruBalance Last is designed to be voluminous to accommodate most foot types and thick socks, so we normally recommend going True To Size.

If you prefer a different fit or silhouette, we also have a Brown Chromexcel Indy Boot crafted on the elegant Alden Plaza Last and various other Alden boots in black as well.

Black Nappa

The classic brilliance of Bruno Magli shoes began in 1936 in  a small basement in Bologna, Italy.  Today, Bruno Magli shoes are known for their elegant, refined silhouettes and artisan heritage.  Shoes that bridge the gap between traditional Italian footwear and modern Italian sensisbilites, these are perfect for the man on your list that loves both luxury and practicality.

12 Days of Gifts: Day 2

gift-guide-stocking-stuffers

We know not everyone is easy to shop for, so this holiday season, we’re giving you 12 days worth of gift ideas!

For day two, we’re showing you how to stuff the stocking of a serious shoe lover. I bet you’re wondering what all this stuff does, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we?

Shoe Trees

Cedar shoe trees are an essential part of caring for leather shoes. They extend the life and durability of shoes by naturally deodorizing and absorbing moisture while helping shoes retain their shape.

 

Shoe Polish

Alden Color 8 Shoe Paste Wax

Nothing makes an entrance like a superior shine.  Help make their shoes glisten with shoe care products from Alden, Meltonian, Saphir, and more.  Want to make shining even easier? Add in a Shine Mate so that shoe polish stays put!

 

Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender is designed to prevent the spotting and discoloration that can occur when shoes are exposed to the elements.  Great for protecting quality footwear.  Not for use on suede or nubuck leathers.

 

Shoe Horns

Shoe HornsShoe Horns Shoe Horns

Long or short, metal or covered in leather–we have a shoe horn for everyone.  Long shoe horns are great for those that have trouble bending down to put on their shoes, while shorter ones are easier to pack.  Using this device to ease your foot into your shoe keeps you from destroying the counters, which are the “heel cups” of the shoe.  Our shoe horns make great gifts!

 

Boot Bags

Alden Boot Bags

Shoe bags and boot bags help to protect your shoes during storage or travel. These are particularly useful for keeping dust and nicks off of your formal shoes, as well as for separating your shoes from your clothes in a suitcase.

Alden Shoes: Some New Arrivals

Alden Shoes at TheShoeMart

Alden Shoes

In 1884 in Middleborough, Massachusetts,  Charles H. Alden began the only original New England shoe company that is still in production today. In a world where many shoe manufacturers outsource production to keep up with the U.S. demand for mass-market footwear at a low cost, the Alden Shoe Company does things differently.  By focusing on high quality dress shoes crafted in Massachusetts with genuine Goodyear-welted construction that can last a lifetime, Alden Shoe has carved it’s own niche into the shoe market. Here at TheShoeMart, we have been selling Alden shoes for over 40 years.  We value our close relationship with Alden, and think that they offer the finest made shoes in the world.

Alden shoes and boots have a special place in our hearts here at TheShoeMart.  We know how much the details matter, so we’d like to share some details about some of our latest Alden Bootmaker Editions.

Alden Shell Cordovan PCT : D5812

1D_D5812

This Perforated Cap Toe boot comes on the Alden Grant Last, which is slimmer than the Barrie Last and a bit more flexible formality-wise.  Boots on the Grant Last will run True To Size, so order your usual dress boot size (not your Barrie or Trubalance size).  With 9 matched agatine eyelets and a 270 Degree Welt, the D5812 offers a sleek but substantial silhouette. Available in Color 8 (D5812) or Black Shell Cordovan (D5813), both with double Leather outsoles.

Alden Calfskin Indy Boot on Plaza: 45212

 

Our BootMaker Edition remake of the Alden Indy Boot on the Alden Plaza Last is also a sleeker boot.  The clean lines of the moc toe stitching, 270 degree Goodyear Welt and 9 matched agatine eyelets add elegance to a long-time favorite. Available in Brown Smooth Calfskin.

Alden 6 Eyelet Indy Oxford: 40023

1D_40023

Speaking of twists on a classic, here’s our latest Indy Oxford.  We tried a version of this Alden shoe in the past with 4 eyelets, but we found that most people needed a little more security–so we added some.  On the famous Alden TruBalance last with a double leather sole, this Indy shoe is available in Horween Brown Chromexcel leather (40023).
