Alden Indy 405 x J Crew: Out of the Box

In doing research for this post, one thing really stood out. Over the past decade, we’ve seen the rise (and sometimes fall) of a number of really impressive bootmaker brands: Viberg, Truman, Oak Street Bootmakers, Grant Stone, etc., however these brands are not really compared all that often. Whenever someone posts a review, the question that comes up is almost always “How does it compare to the Alden Indy?”
