Vintage Alden 500 (Sabel) Lace-to-toe 'monkey' boots, Men’s 10.5 These are certainly one of the rarest make-ups in the old Alden line and are considered by many to be the quintessential “monkey boot” from a high-end manufacturer. I can’t find another one, in this size, on eBay, without going back to 2017 and less than a dozen pairs, of any size, have been sold on eBay in the last five years – of which only 3 have been between size 10-11.5. The sizes normally seen are between 6-8 and 12-14. If you have ever been interested in these, and this is your size, now is the time. These are C.H. Alden Model 500 “Surgical” boots. The Models 500, 501, and 502 were all marketed through Alden’s “Sabel” medical division, during the Brockton Mass. Period (pre 1978.) The model number is not stamped inside these boots, but they are unmistakably Model 500 (see catalog page in photos.) After the move in the 1970’s the Sabel division seems to have become a distinct brand (advertising stopped referencing Alden.) Newer variations I’ve seen have the Alden name and logo prominently displayed on the heel liner, in place of the Sabel branding. I’m dating these to 1974, due to the insole stamping of: “C.H. Alden Shoe Co. Exclusive Maker, Brockton, Mass” and the year mark of “4” in the code. Alden left Brockton in the 1970’s. Condition - These are in excellent, original, shape - unmodified for orthotics. They even have the original laces. Note also the early duck cloth lining. They are fantastically comfortable and light on the feet. They have been worn and have minor scuffs and scrapes, one or two that won’t polish out, but for their age they really are fantastic. You can wear them right out of the box with no issues at all. Shown in as-found condition (other than a wipe down and brushing.) Construction – The quality of the construction is excellent. Nothing is hurried, no missed stitches or bulging seams. The upper is only listed as “Smooth black side leather”. Insole is listed as “Natural veg tanned leather”. 14 pairs of eyelets! Fully cloth(?) lined tongue. Alden lists these as being on the “True-line” last, with “Prime selection Oak-bend leather outsoles”, and “Heavy, ribbed tempered steel shanks.' These are full leather boots, with a leather upper, insole and outsole - only the heel toplifts are rubber. Wear and Fit – Being of full lace-to-toe construction you can unlace these as far as you need and adjust along the way for comfort. With no speed hooks, this can be a bit of a task the first time, but getting the first six eyelets adjusted and locked in seems to work well. Once adjusted you couldn’t really ask for a more comfortable boot. There is a massive, solid, heel counter for support.They are U.S size 10.5 and the width is not listed (Alden only lists these as being made in widths starting at “E” in their 1990’s catalog). There is no width marking on them and I don’t have an old enough Alden or Sable catalog to reference. Measuring the widest part of the boot, on the outsole gives 4 3/8'.They seem to fit true to size in length, but they seem more like a tight 'D' width or a 'C' maybe? I suppose measure the width of the outsole of a boot that fits you and check against these. It's hard to tell - I am 11E in many boots (10 C/E in Alden Trubalance last) and these are too snug for me all over. I can lace these up and wear them, so they're not crazy slim, but they simply don't fit me and I can't properly guess the width. I wouldn’t buy these if you are size 11 D or larger. You are taking a chance if you are 11 C, but they may well work. There are photos of them on my feet, so please use that as a guide, remembering that fit is snug. It’s possible these aren’t really even broken in yet – anyone’s guess. I wish I could offer more information, but there is hardly any to be found. Do be certain that these are what you want before purchase and thank you for looking. I also have the Alden 502 boots listed on eBay at present. Sold as-is! No warranty and no returns.
