Founded by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is the oldest shoemaker in New England and is still based in its hometown of Middleborough, MA. The family-owned business crafts high-quality footwear using time-tested techniques, and we’re proud to present our newest collection of exclusive pairs that will last a lifetime.
Alden uses the finest materials available, like shell cordovan leather (above and far left) and snuff suede (left). These will break in and take on a patina that’s unique to you over time.
Every detail matters to Alden (and to us). You’ll find hand-stitching, oiled leather outsoles, Goodyear welts and other traditional shoemaking methods that signify quality.
Comfort is paramount—after all, shoes are meant to be worn. Alden uses proprietary lasts (a last is the foot-shaped form around which a shoe is created) honed over nearly 140 years of experience to ensure you get the most comfortable fit possible.
