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
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
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).
