Alden Ceiling?

I’m fascinated by our industry’s capacity to reinvent and shower admiration on the lowly Alden Indy boot. I don’t think there is a boot that photographs better as a standalone, superlative object (minus feet, torso or a perfectly posed, denim clad user). I love the current tweaks carried out by Standard & Strange on their new Alden Falcon Indy: new leather, new last, no speed laces. As prices creep upward, I wonder: what is the most you would pay for what was originally marketed as a workboot for mechanics?
