What is an Alden Factory Second?

Alden Factory Seconds, also known as Alden Irregulars, are items that didn't pass the Alden Shoe Company's quality control tests.  The defects are usually minor cosmetic blemishes that would likely take place anyway after regular wear.

Defects you'll experience will never affect the fit or longevity of the product.

Functionally, Alden Factory Seconds are exactly the same as first quality Alden Shoes, they can be re-crafted, and provided that you don't break the last, (creating creases where your foot has flexed) and walk on carpet, they can be returned!
