The Alden Shoe Company was founded in 1884 by Charles H. Alden in Middleborough, Massachusetts. Alden has had an unwavering dedication to the highest standards of shoe-making from its days of inception. Not redone yearly at the drawing board, but reaffirmed continuously in the workshop. Alden is the only original New England shoe and bootmaker remaining of the hundreds who began at the turn of the last century. Still a family owned business, still carrying forward a tradition of quality genuine-welted shoemaking that is exceptional in every way.
