    Every time I see a real life picture of this model I really like it. I think they're not very popular because Alden's stock photo really doesn't do the shoes justice.

    Boy, those shoes are almost as old as I am!

    just curious to know if you recall the price of them back in the day?

    It seems Alden raises price yearly. Some places sell shell boots for over $700 now.

    Just got my first pair of indy 403's today from a shop near me. Wow these boots are amazing and i got them for a good price $435. I'm glad I was able to find a shop to try these on. These fit true to size for me and i was surprised with that since all the advise to size down a 1/2 size would have been too tight for me.

    my guess is in inflation adjusted $'s the price isn't THAT different from what it is now.

    In the 1950s a pair do shell cordovan 975s sold for $25.

    In say 50 years from now it will sell for $19,600...
