Alden's authentic work boot. Famous for its career in film, appreciated today for its timeless design. Robust Horween leathers and incredible all-day comfort. Supple full glove leather lining, Neo-cork outsoles, vegetable tanned leather insoles. Unsurpassed for breathable comfort and long wear, it assumes over time the contours of your foot shape giving a truly custom quality to the fit. Beneath the insole is a layer of cork, providing additional resilience and insulation. Every Alden New England shoe carries a tempered steel shank, precisely contoured and triple ribbed for extra strength. Truly the backbone of a fine welt shoe or boot, the shank provides the proper support and shape required to give comfort throughout the day.

5 out of 5 stars An absolute essential 05/03/2014
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Gazza from Dulles, VA US
These boots have done nothing but exceed every expectation. If you do a little research on Alden's Trubalance last, you will most likely not have a problem with fit. What impressed me most was how comfortable they were right out of the box. I had no problems wearing them all day immediately, there seems to be no "break in" period needed for the uppers. The footbeds did not take long to mould to my feet. The soles also provide excellent grip, much better than what I have experienced with comparable boots.

I was a little dismayed to see what I would call imperfections in the leather, markings and scuffs, right out of the box. But again, doing some research showed that is common with the Chromexcel leather.

I have never tried anything from Wolverine, but these are more comfortable and higher quality than anything I have owned from Red Wing.

Finally, every picture I have seen of them online does not do the boots justice. They look even better in person. I look forward to years of ownership.

5 out of 5 stars Best in class 04/10/2014
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Brendan Petri from Bedford, NY US
I picked up a pair in black aniline this winter. I've been accumulating quite the Alden collection since learning that the ShoeMart retail location is near to my home. Of the 5 boot styles I currently own, these undoubtedly fit the best right out of the box. By day 2 they felt like I'd been wearing them in for years. Just perfect fit--and I have several pairs on identical lasts in other models--call comfortable, but these have some magic.

To top it off, looks are first class. My fiancée would be happy if I wore them every day, and her I'd intended on beating up on them a bit! Solution? Pair number 2 in Brown CXL,

Only difference from other reviews I should mention is that these definitely run one half size large, but in some cases I find that a full size down works also. It kind of depends on the exact boot in hand, as I get the sense that minor variations in size are not uncommon with so much handcrafting involved.

Bottom line: buy them now,

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful boot! 10/03/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from SLC, UT US
Just got my first pair of Indy boots in the mail today (exactly on my birthday no less) and I have to say these boots are the best fitting and best crafted shoes I've owned, even better then Bruno's or Salvador's. The fit like a glove right out of the box and the leather is very, very nice. If you're on the fence about buying these boots, do yourself a favor and get them.

Like the other reviews have pointed out though, they do run a half size large.

5 out of 5 stars Best Functional Alden Indy Boots 12/04/2012
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: George from Tucson, AZ US
I own three (3) pairs of the Alden Indy Tobacco Chamois boots. These are perhaps the best functional Alden Indy boots ever made. My home is Arizona but I work in Africa six months at a time. With only a horse hair brush for care of the boots, these boots have maintained their fucntionality and comfort. After rough use in inclement weather - humidity, jungle, rain, and heat - they are still clean, supple, comfortable, and magnificent. I highly recommend the tobacco chamois boots if you are going on an amazing adventure or just for a short walk around your home. These are amazing boots.

Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Stephen F. from Liverpool, NY US
I purchased these about a year ago. The best leather I've ever seen. Gets better with age. They're a half size longer than reported so order a half size down. You'll love them.
