On Friday Feb. 12, 2010, Alden representative Nate Humble will be in Portland, showcasing Alden’s range of high quality US made shoes and boots. He will be performing fittings for customers and explaining what makes the construction of Alden shoes so unique. For customers interested in Alden’s special make up program offered through Winn Perry we will be taking ideas from you for styles that you would like to see produced and previewing the styles that we will be producing for Spring and Fall. This will include a new round of pre-orders for new models, as well as, our already established 97786 Double Waterloc Longwing (pictured above) and 45193H Reverse Chamois Boots ("Little Tanks").
Alden Shoe Co. has been producing hand made footwear in Middleborough, MA since 1884.

In it’s 125 years of operation, the company has established a reputation around the globe as a preeminent producer of shoes and boots, utilizing outstanding materials such as, Horween shell cordovan.
To up the ante, we will be showcasing for the first time a special run of Makr Flap Wallets crafted from Horween shell cordovan. These minimalist wallets are hand sewn and burnished in Orlando, FL and show the true beauty of Horween’s shell cordovan, known as one the highest quality leathers in the world.
