Quoddy Boat Moc & Maliseet, Restock

Another shipment of Quoddy Maliseet’s and Boat Moc’s arrived at Leffot. These shoes are about as classic as you can get in moccasin territory. The Maliseet is Brown Chromexcel, complimented by a red brick camp sole, deerskin lining, four eyelets, and rawhide laces.

The Quoddy Boat Moc in vibrant Whiskey Cavelier is the perfect casual, comfortable shoe to wear with jeans or khakis. They’re unlined, so you can wear these without socks in summer or with socks in spring. Shorts, jeans, khakis are made to compliment these beautiful shoes.

Alden Unlined Snuff Suede Loafer

Alden’s Unlined Snuff Suede Loafer is possibly the easiest, most comfortable shoe you can get. These are a classic Alden model known as the Leisure Handsewn, or LHS for short, a shoe built on the Van last. Made in unlined snuff suede, this shoe fits like a sock, wrapping your foot in light and vibrant suede. With it’s oil-soaked flex welt, these loafers and light and flexible. This is the kind of shoe that you forget you have on.

We have a lot of experience with this color of suede. It is extremely versatile, pairing wonderfully with the indigo and white denim or the charcoal gray of wool dress slacks.
