Double Monk Strap Shoes

The double monk strap shoe is one of the most unique shoes you can buy. It gracefully embodies a number of contradictions. Its of the moment but also very classic. Its simply designed but surprisingly intricate. It comes from a formal background but can be very casual when you want it to be.

We have a number of double monk strap styles in stock at a wide range of prices and styles. From the suede 505 from St. Crispin’s to the oak Ramsey from Alfred Sargent, all would be a versatile and character-filled addition to your wardrobe.

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.
