Alden Wingtip Boots


Step out in style with the Alden Wingtip Boots for J Crew ($565). Crafted with Alpine grain leather and a Goodyear welt that is built specifically so that the sole can be replaced, this boot will last a lifetime. The brass eyelets and leather lining provide the perfect finishing touches to this handsome classic.

These fine boots are bench-made by one of the most respected shoemakers in the country. Founded in Massachusetts by Charles H. Alden in 1884, the Alden Shoe Company is in its fourth generation, making it the oldest shoemaker in New England. Alden is now the only original New England shoe and boot maker remaining of the hundreds of shoe companies once in this region. So what is the secret to their success? Alden prospers by relying not on lower quality, mass-marketed footwear but on high quality dress shoes and excelling in specialties such as orthopedic and medical footwear. Today they are still a family owned business, still carrying forward a tradition of quality shoemaking, and still proudly American made.
