Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is now in its fourth generation of shoemaking, and its integrity and attention to craft have made us loyal followers. Designed just for us, these handsome boots are handcrafted from the finest European leather (chosen by our design team), then waxed to a rich lustre. Finished with all of Alden's hallmark details, including their famed Goodyear welt, full leather lining, a tempered steel shank and Thomas heel, designed to support the arch. To be sure they last generations, you can send them to Alden for resoling at any time. Clean with brown paste or wax polish.
