Details
Alden Bootmaker Edition Black shell cordovan Indy boot handsewn on the last made from luxurious long wearing shell cordovan upper material, with commando soles and heels. Alden shell cordovan shoes are finished by Alden's master craftsman. They are admired by the finest boot and shoemakers throughout the world. Using the centuries-old method of pure vegetable tanning and hand finishing, the single tannery still producing genuine shell cordovan today is indeed practicing a rare art. The tanning process takes a full six months to complete and produces leather that is soft and supple, yet very durable.

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. Oak tanned leather bends are cut into outsoles at factory for maximum control of quality. Shoe mart is proud to offer this model, crafted not only with good looks, but with the integrity of fine shoemaking, a special addition to your wardrobe.

    Alden Quality is not what it use to be
    Review by Thomas (on 11/23/2015)
    I purchased a pair of the black shell cordovan Indy Boots. After wearing them less than 2 weeks the tongues would slip to the side. I e-mailed Alden customer no-service and received a quick reply that Alden would do nothing and that I needed to take my issue up with the retailer, TheShoeMart.com. The shoe mart did take care of this problem, by stitching the tongues in place. I have now had these boots for 12 months and they have had several trips to my local cobbler. In two of the eyelets there were small barbs that were catching and pulling the laces. Both heals have had to be reattached. And the rubber sole covers on both boots are separating from the leather. Also any amount of rain that I get on the boots will soak in through the welt on the boots. I have a vintage pair of Alden

    Great Boot
    Review by Stephen F. (on 6/29/2012)
    The last does fit a full 1/2 size larger, so you may want to order a half size smaller than usual. Unbelievable shoe! Unbelievable cordovan leather! They start out looking dark brown, but have flashes of color variance that add tremendously to the appearance of the shoe. I get compliments on these almost every time I wear them.

    Excellent Shoe and Service
    Review by A viewer (on 8/21/2010)
    This might be the nicest shoe I have ever owned or seen. Extremely high in quality. Rich looking cordovan. Comfortable fit. As to ShoeMart service, when I had sizing questions, I was transferred to the owner of the company who spent a considerable amount of time discussing the issue with me. His advice turned out to be perfect, because the shoe fits very well.
