Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is the oldest shoemaker in New England. These leather bluchers are handcrafted and hand stained and shined to a rich lustre. They feature all of Alden's hallmark details, including its famed Goodyear welt, full leather lining and dovetail heel reinforcement. And to be sure they last generations, you can send them back to Alden for resoling at any time. Because these shoes are handmade, your size may be on back order—but they're worth the wait.
