Earlier in the year The Boston Globe published an article and an accompanying video about the venerable U.S. shoemaker Alden and their continued domestic production. The short piece of video is an interesting look at the state of New England shoe manufacturing, or the lack there of. Globe staffer Emily Sweeney adds a bit of authentic Massachusetts favor to the piece by dropping her R’s throughout the segment.
The video was found through the very well done blog Sleevehead. Worth a look and a bookmark.
