Alden shoe company was founded in 1884. Early new england shoemaking was a trade based upon one craftsman making a pair a day. The great depression took a toll on shoe companies in new england. Most of the companies who remained in new england could not compete in the demanding post-world war ii economy. Yet alden prospered by relying not on low quality mass-markets but instead on high quality dress shoes. Alden is now the only original new england shoe and bootmaker remaining of the hundreds who began long ago. Still a family owned business, still carrying forward a tradition, and still sourcing only top quality materials.
