Blackbird have got their mitts on Alden’s ‘Indy’ boot, which was an inspiration for one of A.P.C’s AW09 shoes that we featured a while back. We know it’s all the rage on the ‘intanetz’ to pretend as if you’ve been up on something since it began, but we’ll be the first to admit we didn’t previously know why this Alden boot was called the Indy.
According to Blackbird, the boot was originally named the ‘High Work Shoe’ and has been about since the 1930’s. The name change happened when Harrison Ford started wearing them in Indiana Jones films. Feel free to bore anyone you know with that information when you get your hands on these. (Blackbird)
