Hey everyone,

Since we couldn't find one, we figured that it's high time for an "Official Alden Thread" here on Superfuture.

We're huge fans of the brand and we felt that having a dedicated thread for ALL different types of Alden footwear would be great. A place to discuss sizing of different styles and lasts, upcoming releases, distributors, care, evolution, etc...

Below is an Alden factory visit documentary that we shot back in '09. If you haven't already seen it, then check it out - it's a great way to get more insight into the company, their process, and its products. Enjoy!

I'm in a size 8 in Barrie ,.... will this translate to a different size for any of the other lasts?

I want to see a pebble grain oxford with commando sole... does this exist?
only thing similar to this is the LS x Alden safari boot, if i recall correctly

Alden has a ton of different lasts, but the most common equivalents to the US8 Barrie would be:

US8 - Tru-Balance
US8.5 - Leydon
US8.5 - Aberdeen
US8.5 - Plaza

Most of the interesting shoes you see from Alden come from stores with accounts like ourselves. We do not currently have anything like a pebble grain oxford w/ commando sole in the works, but someone else might...

Thanks Vin. Damn straight we do! I cannot wait to see what surfaces...

Great video, always nice to see a little insight.

Thank you sir. We really enjoyed making it and am glad you liked it.

So...any mods up to the task of combing through the "Shoes that look better with age" thread to find all the years worth of golden nuggets posted in the past about Alden? amlai photoshoots immediately come to mind...;)

What are your favorite Alden Longwing makeups? I'm in the market...

Looking for something that can be worn pretty casually, not too shiny :)

Random flick I found of the Alden for Winn Perry "Little Tanks" I used to own. Had to let them go as they were a half size too big...

My not so humble "boot" collection. All boots have been worn except the two #8 tankers. Also I no longer own the black calf NST tankers but they belong in a good new home now. If you like the pics I can post a few more.
