A Warm Welcome to Alden Shoes at Tenue de Nîmes!
We are proud to announce we received the first drop of Alden shoes at Tenue de Nîmes. The legendary Alden Shoe Company was founded in 1884 by Charles H. Alden in Middleborough, Massachusetts. The brand became rapidly known for its high quality dress shoes. Unlike many other brands who searched for ways to lower costs in the post-WWII period, Alden remained focussed on top quality, excelling on specialties such as orthopaedic and medical footwear. In 1970 Alden opened a new factory in Middleborough where te company still produces today.
We are thrilled that Tenue de Nîmes just became part of the exceptional Alden shoe family. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we have the honour to meet Alden's John Happ at our Tenue de Nîmes Haarlemmerstraat store. Mr. Happ will give us an Alden presentation and explains about the iconic shoes like the Indy Boot 403 shown above. If you wish to attend this special Alden x Tenue de Nîmes meeting please feel free to join us! We start the day with an Alden introduction at 10:00am but of course you are welcome to step in at any convenient time! If you are not able to make it this time, we will have enough ‘New England’ shoe stories ready for you upon your next visit.
