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.

Reviewer: A viewer from North Hollywood, CA US
This is my second pair of Indy Boots from the Shoemart;403 purchased on 4/9/15, 405 purchased in 2010.

My recent purchase came with Alden boot bags and free shoe horn.

Though pricier than most made in USA boots, the difference is worth it. I have a lower muscle pain that hurts with prolonged standing during work. The Indy boot gives me the support I need to walk and stand for hours.

5 out of 5 stars Outstanding American shoes 03/07/2015
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from Clarksville, TX US
I bought the Alden 405s from Shoe Mart August 2009 for $344 shipped and have worn them almost daily since (14 month break), I'm on the 3rd set of heels and have repaired one shoe welt since and will most likely repair the other soon along with stitching the tongue up on one of them (common issue with these).

I've not cared for them all that well with periodic oiling with neatsfoot oil and have gotten them wet many times. They are very comfortable and definitely show their miles.

I really don't want to pay $522 for another pair and just may sell these to a Indiana Jones cosplay guy for more than I paid for them since they look like they got buried in the temple of doom and I wear the average size of 10D, noamsayn?

If they were still $344 I'd buy some more.

5 out of 5 stars Great Boot!! 01/06/2015
Shoe Size: Fits full size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: A viewer from Lafayette, LA US
It was difficult to pull the trigger on a $500+ boot, because I usually buy $30 and under shoes. I am definitely glad I did! These boots fit fantastic, are extremely durable, and great looking. I get compliments from strangers all the time. I am on my feet quite a bit during the day, and use these as actual work boots, not just stylish shoes. They give my feet the support they need all day. It was difficult using them as work boots for the first time, because they looked and felt so nice, but I knew eventually they would get scuffed and worn in. Its been over a year now, and they have held their shine an polish remarkably well! The size is larger than other shoes in the store. I had to return mine and order a full size smaller, but luckily the shoemart return process is very simple if you follow the instructions.

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,
