alden makes classically-constructed shoes.

 

this means that below the insole is a corkbed that conform to your feet over time.  rather than some synthetic insole that is soft, but deform elastically (=springy)

A good fitting shoe with proper structure will feel better than a squishy padded footbed shoe. Padding usually makes up for a poor fit and for Alden, with it's many widths available, you should have the best fitting shoe possible. I'd like to tell you that Allen Edmonds does not necessarily do things any different than Alden. Alden just uses a padded heelpad, but they say it's to cover up the nails they use to secure the heel to the midsole.

One difference - Allen Edmonds shoes do not have a shank in them.

Yeah, if you go to prison I would highly recommend the Alden's over the AE's. :evil:

Remember the only difference between Wall Street and lockup is the width of the stripes...
