Model Archive – Alden

A most well known and respected American shoe brand founded in 1884.

Maybe not the best one in the history, but doubtlessly the best nowadays.

When speaking about shell cordovan shoes, Alden is the king with no competitor at all.

But for me, Alden is a brand cross standing in dress shoes and casual shoes, and maybe more on the casual side.

Alden’s model is talked by its serial number, but the number changes with colours and leathers, which is too many, so I just use the official model names.

As a great brand with so many years of history, Alden has a very limited collection, and most of them have become icons, I think this is the biggest success.
