Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is in its fourth generation and is the oldest shoemaker in New England. In an exclusive collaboration with J.Crew, these Indy boots were created using a full leather lining and shaped over a Trubalance last. Why the name? Well, before Harrison Ford was Indiana Jones, he turned to Alden for durable, comfortable boots. While in wardrobe to play "Indy," he declared that the only boots he would wear were his own. And the rest, as they say, is history.
