Upper: Butter-soft Full-grain Suede
Outsole: Combination leather/rubber Commando sole
Last: Tru-Balance Comfort Last

"Milkshake" is a sumptuous, alabaster shade of suede that's extremely soft and luxurious. Like all Horween products, though, it's tough as nails and nothing to dote over. The light, pearly color, matching brass eyelets and natural edge-trim make this an unsurpassed warm-weather rendition of everyone's favorite Alden boot, while the heavy-duty Commando Sole prepares it for all conditions. These Indys come with a long lifespan and promise to look great with jeans, wool trousers, and absolutely perfect with chinos.

Originally created in the 1930's as a work boot, the Alden "Indy" Boot has gone largely unchanged for the better part of 80 years. They are simply some of the most comfortable and classic boots that you can own. It was famously worn by Harrison Ford in every Indiana Jones movie - hence the "Indy" moniker. Its neoprene cork-filled sole is great in all situations - including foul weather - and will wear hard for years. And as nice as it looks in these pristine, brand-new photos, it's a real masterpiece after several years of wear and tear.

SIZING

The "Tru-Balance" last runs approximately one-half size big. Order one half size smaller than your typical dress shoe size (e.g. order a 9.5D if you typically wear a 10D).

SHIPPING

Our apologies, we cannot ship Alden shoes to addresses outside of the United States and Canada.

RECRAFTING

Alden shoes are Goodyear welted and handmade by union craftsmen. As such, they can be easily resoled and recrafted by the factory. When you've worn out the sole (which will take a LONG time), you can return them back to Alden for resoling and complete refurbishing of the upper. The cost is approximately $125. With this excellent program, you can easily get many years of regular wear out of Alden's quality shoes. Which is important - as you'll surely grow very attached to them.

ALDEN HISTORY
The Alden Shoe Company was founded in 1884 by Charles H. Alden in Middleborough, Massachusetts - and it remains in that same town to this very day. Since its inception, the Alden Shoe Company has designed and manufactured classic gentlemen's footwear that represents America's tradition of old-school, custom shoemaking at its finest. They have the well-earned reputation of being the best shoe manufacturer in the United States, and one of the top shoemakers in the world.

Given a modern world that too often prizes the promotion rather than the product, you might well imagine these old-fashioned talents for craft and honest value to be irretrievably lost. Alden's footwear stands as clear, adamant proof to the contrary. Each of their classically designed shoes are handworked from the finest leathers, represent a century-old tradition of craftsmanship, and reflect in a quiet, sure way the solid values and timeless style of the man who wears them. Epaulet is honored to be one of their official dealers.
