My number one recommended shoe. They are 100 percent made in America and are much, much higher quality than anything from any other country.  They use only top grain, aniline leather or Horween Horsehide.

They are also made with steel shanks in them and will last a lifetime.  You can also send them back to the manufacturer for a complete restoration.  There is no reason why you shouldn`t have these shoes 50 years from now.  Even 100 years.

I have many pair and I even have one from 1951 that I wear on occasion. Buy them, you can`t have better quality.

People in Japan so desperately want American Made goods, especially Aldens, they will easily pay a thousand or more for the quality.


American Made Leather goods are second to none.

Mark Nason has some great stuff. Nice leathers superior quality. One thing- you had better be under 35 years old if you wear Mark Nason. Anyone older looks like old dude having a midlife crisis, or a dude that has a 26 year old hooker buying his shoes.

He has an entry level line that is marginal and his high end stuff that is nice, and a lot of his stuff is very "Affliction" ish.

The leather they use is inferior.  They compensate with poor cuts of leather by crappy dye jobs and distressing to mask that they are using bottom grade hides.

If you can afford them get them. When decent running shoes are $100 plus I'm not surprised at the cost of good dress shoes. I spent $135 on dress shoes 25 years ago and they still look great. A little kiwi and a spit shine makes them look like new.

It's funny, I don't have too many nice articles of clothing, because of my line of work, and general lack of discipline in taking care of it, but I do buy my wife nice things, and myself from time to time.  But, in saying that, one thing I've noticed, the only people who know what high fashion/nice things are, are those who know what it is.  I have some cool watches, that some people I hang around with have no idea what they are.  I don't flash anything, like keep gesturing with my watch clad hand, but no one ever notices unless you're a douche and try and make them notice.  Mostly it's about treating yourself to something quality made that you feel good about wearing.  I have some Hermes ties that are old, but still look good today.  Quality made items that don't jump ship at every fashion craze, will always be in style.

Just like women who spend countless thousands on shoes like it is a necessity but then question why I would spend a few thousand on a watch.

If you knew how the shoe was made and the construction process involved, let alone the quality of the hide, you would find that 500 dollars is rather a bargain for such quality.  They will last a life time.
Seriously, when you buy an Alden, you buy it for life.  This is the way it used to be before Cheap shit from China took over and the throw away society became a mainstay.

English shoes are great.  John Lobb, my personal favorite is Henry Maxwell, Edward Greene is top notch as is Grenson.  George Cleverly is probably the best shoe maker in all of England.

You`d have to go with Church`s that are around 20-40 plus years old for quality.  The old hides were top grained.

In defense of the Alden's. Your paying for the little things like the way they handle a stich or the transition between certain parts of the boot, sole and heel construction, etc..... The quality of leather is huge thing when looking at many goods, it may not seem all that different just reading about it, but it's huge when you actually have goods in hand.

Also, if you take care of them, and resole them and they last many seasons, you really haven't spent all that much when you look at the prorated cost.

Their work has been sloppy for a while now.  Some of their work is contracted out even outside of the factory in Marche.  Its not as hand-crafted as you think, even the limited edition.  One shoe will see many hands and will not be the work of just one or two.  

Their limited line is not the best by the way.  You can obtain a bespoke if you are willing to pay a bit more, but the quality will not be much different at all. (depending on what you ask for).  They do use aniline for most of their stuff, but their recent dye and polish jobs as seen on the current limited editions, are meant to cover for lack of grain that you would find in a JM Weston or Stefano Bemer. (where Daniel Day Lewis apprenticed apprenticed for 8 months a few years back)


But, if thats what you like, who am I to convince you differently.

I'm trying to figure out what's more disturbing.  Listening to 2 homos argue over who has the fanciest shoes, or actually paying 500 bucks for shoes.   ???   :D

if you can't afford a designer watch and cufflinks that cost more than the shoes then why even bother

Fuck these Brits; American leather all the way.
Britain is the failboat for everything anymore. Even doc Martin is made in India now.
And British made Jaguars leak oil like no tomorrow. I know because my uncle is a Jag enthusiast and owns several.
Bottom line: British made = shit

No shit. Don't rock $500 shoes with a $40 outfit.

exactly. $500 shoes only look foolish without a custom tailored suit and $6000 dollar designer cufflinks, not to mention the Rolex that costs 15k. i figure if you're not wearing the best then you're pretty well just pretending.

and if your 'thinking' about buying the shoes, you probly cant afford them imo.
