Alden's historic Indy Boot has been a fan favorite here at Blackbird since the first pair of 405s (pictured above) got pulled out of the box late last summer. Originally dubbed the High Work Shoe in the late 1930's, it's been known as the Indy Boot since Harrison Ford wore it in the Indiana Jones movies.

Given their insane popularity, we're scratching our heads as to why the idea to get a few more colors in stock didn't come to mind a little sooner, but we figure it's better late than never! Presenting Alden of New England's High Work Shoe Indy Boots in Chromexcel black and brown:
