    Dear Mike,

    Thank you for the great post of Alden of Carmel. I really read your article very well and am so pleased to become aware of how the Alden of Carmel starts off their business and who Adam is. I also purchased a pair of Alden shoes, Black Shell Cordovan Chukka boots, from the shop with the help of Adam last year. That’s why I’m very impressed to your post.
    Once again, it is absolutely imformative and I am going to become a bigger fan of Alden shoes, especially Alden of Carmel.

    Mike, what a great idea and a great post in this series. I think AoC is the perfect first post subject on this topic and it was very interesting read on Adam and the store’s history and relationship with Alden shoes!

    Great article!
    Fascinating to learn the history behind these fine names that have helped over the years, to promote Alden to where it is today.

    Thank you for such a wonderful article! My first Alden purchase experience was with Adam. Adam is a gentleman and a great Alden expert. During my first Alden purchase experience – a Kudu 405 boot – Adam explained everything I needed to know about Alden boots. Now, due to Adam’s enthusiasm, I own 11 pairs of Alden boots. Thank you, Adam! Thank you, Mike! Very Respectfully, George

    Recently ordered a pair of Alden Indy boots through Adam and Alden of Carmel. What a great ordering experience, Adam answered my questions and also asked the right questions to help me get the right fit. Reading this article was very informative and bolstered my decision to place my order with Adam. I really enjoy your site, thanks!

      Good Afternoon Fausto, unfortunately I am not a retailer and do not carry an inventory other than my personal collection. Those boots specifically were made by Alden Madison, I would suggest that you become acquainted with them and then inquire about the above boots. Thanks!
