A long time ago Alden decided that it is important to create handsome shoes of great comfort and quality. Since 1884, the Alden Shoe Company has designed and manufactured classic gentlemen's footwear that represents America's tradition of old-school, custom shoemaking at its finest.
Still, given a modern world that too often prizes the promotion rather than the product, you might well imagine these old-fashioned talents for craft and honest value to be irretrievably lost. Alden's footwear stands as clear, adamant proof to the contrary.
Many of Alden's classic patterns take on a unique character when made from a genuine shell Cordovan, a leather of rare and enduring quality.
