403 Indy Boot

We’ve received our first delivery of Alden’s new 403 stock Indy Boots. These boots are the same authentic Alden work boots you have known and loved. The 403 is made on the Trubalance last with Brown Chromexcel uppers, supple glove leather linings. Horween Chromexcel is excellent leather and looks great on these boots.

Incidentally we spent the day at the Alden factory and world headquarters in Middelborough, MA yesterday. What a great time, we took lots of pictures and video, which we’ll post as soon as we can.

Quoddy Mocs Rock

“What’s a moccasin?”  It’s a type of shoe construction, not a style or design statement.  Simply put, handsewn moccasin construction surrounds your foot in leather. It enables the shoe to conform to your foot naturally. Quoddy footwear is made with very few pieces of leather that are sewn together by hand there are no glue, staples, plastic molding, or other more “advanced” processes involved. Quoddy shoes are fully leather lined and adapt to your foot, rather than the other way around. These shoes are incredibly comfortable, and a classic American casual.

Quoddy harkens back to the time when hand-made was the norm, when output was measured in dozens, not thousands. At Quoddy, one person  handsews your shoes at their bench – the quality of that pair is a testament to the individual skill that went into making them.
