Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation and is the oldest shoe- and boot-maker in New England. A cult classic for decades, the iconic 405 Indy boots (made famous by Indiana Jones) are customized exclusively for us with a stained welt. Because each pair is expertly and carefully crafted by hand, these boots are available in limited quantities. If your size is not available, we recommend putting yourself on the waiting list (trust us, they're worth the wait). When cleaning, apply a brown paste or wax polish.
