Alden’s Indy Boot is a classic work boot designed for comfort, support, and endurance. It was not, however, designed for winter. Fortunately, this problem is solved easily enough.
The addition of commando soles to the classic 405 design makes for an entirely new boot, with added traction for slippery surfaces and a lighter weight for nimbly dodging around patches of ice and snow.
Don’t be afraid to wear these once the snow melts though. Smooth brown cowhide makes for a more refined boot than most, which increases wearability and versatility, and lugged soles are suitable for almost any terrain. If you only own one boot, it should be this one.
