History of the Alden 401

The Alden 401 started its life as the company's authentic work boot. But it reached icon status as Harrison Ford's footwear of choice in the Indiana Jones movies. Now famous for its film career, this boot is still appreciated for its timeless design and comfort.

The Alden 401 Indy Boot features robust Horween leathers for incredible all-day comfort, supple full glove leather lining, neo-cork outsoles with a Thomas heel, and vegetable-tanned leather insoles. A Trubalance last and the Indy moc stitch toe are the hallmarks of this iconic footwear.

Unsurpassed for breathable comfort and long wear, Alden 401 boots assume the contours of your foot shape over time, giving a truly custom quality to the fit. A layer of cork is beneath the insole, providing additional resilience and insulation.

The Alden 401 Indy boot carries a tempered steel shank, which is precisely contoured and triple-ribbed for extra strength. The shank offers the proper support and shape needed to give comfort throughout the day. It's truly the backbone of a fine welt shoe or boot.
