Alden's fitting philosophy ensures a comfortable fit inside the shoes for best ergonomic function. This means that when buying your regular size you will find the shoes slightly larger than you are used to. If you prefer a snug fit, please size down a half size.
About the brand
There are not many shoe companies like Alden left; in fact, there have never been many companies like Alden around at all. Alden is now the only original New England shoe and boot maker remaining of the hundreds who began so long ago. Since 1884, Alden Shoe Company in Middleborough, Massachusetts has been producing some of the finest leather shoes in the world. It might be a little difficult to imagine just how active and important the shoe industry was in Massachusetts so long ago. It was a well-respected and lucrative industry employing most of the area. Early New England shoemaking was a trade based upon one craftsman making a pair a day in one room cottages (called "ten footers"). Alden is still a family owned business, still carrying forward a tradition of quality genuine-welted shoemaking that is exceptional in every way. We are of course very happy to be one of few retailers allowed to stock a small range of Alden’s.
