Riccardo Bestetti Trunk Show, October 16 and 17

You are cordially invited to join us for Riccardo Bestetti’s first US trunk show. Riccardo will be here this Thursday and Friday, October 16 and 17, to take orders for bespoke and made-to-order shoes.

In addition to regular MTOs, Bestetti also offers the Novecento line, which is made to bespoke standards. An existing last is adjusted to fit your foot, and small changes to the shoe’s shape are also possible. Both the Novecento line and standard MTOs are hand welted with a wood-pegged waist, and are made of the highest quality raw materials.

We’ll have a full size run of try-on shoes to assist in determining your size, so if you’ve never worn Bestettis, you’ll be able to get a sense of the shoes’ fit and feel.

We’re excited to bring Riccardo and his fine shoes to New York, and we hope you’ll join us for two special days.

Stefano Bemer trunk show, October 2 and 3

You are cordially invited to the first New York trunk show featuring the renowned shoes of Stefano Bemer. Tommaso Milani will be here on October 2 and 3 to present the collection.

Offering both bespoke and ready-to-wear, Stefano Bemer shoes are entirely handmade with exacting attention to detail in their workshop in Florence. A variety of leathers are available, ranging from traditional calfskins and shell cordovan to elephant, hippo, shark, and other exotics, all done in the singular Stefano Bemer style. This isn’t an event to miss.

“A shoe is an object which, if of excellent quality, helps us to walk and live more comfortably. When made from high quality materials and using excellent craftsmanship, it becomes a product that pleases us and stands out from the inevitable globalization of brands and industrially manufactured products.”
—Stefano Bemer, 1964 – 2012

Tony Gaziano at Leffot

Tony Gaziano is recognized as one of the premier men’s shoe designers of the world. A select group indeed, his shoes embrace a modern sophisticated design that draws from the English tradition of shoemaking.

In 2008 Leffot was the first American shop to offer G&G’s ready to wear collection and in a sense both G&G and us have grown up together. We are proud of our relationship with G&G and are very pleased to have Tony Gaziano join us for our Trunk Show on May 14th from 11:00-7:00. If you are a fan of G&G we hope you’ll find the time to visit and meet Tony.

Gaziano & Girling Trunk Show

Gaziano and Girling shoes are a precise exercise in unique style. These made to order shoes are excellent examples of that fact, perfectly straddling the line between classic and modern with distinctive yet subtle style in hand. It all comes through in the details, from the sleek lasts, to the one-of-a-kind buckles, to the classic broguing, everything compliments the whole.

Please join us Tuesday, May 14th when Tony Gaziano will be here of our next Trunk Show.

Leffot at Five

We opened our doors for business on May 5th, 2008. That was a very exciting time, and as we celebrate our fifth anniversary we’re still excited to bring you shoes, accessories and events we hope you’ll enjoy.

We are extremely thankful, gratified and humbled to all who have supported and encouraged us along the way. With little more than a love of shoes and an idea that others might feel the same we opened our shop.

As we begin year six our goal remains the same, simply to bring you the choicest shoes and accessories possible while providing you with excellent service. Our sincere thanks to one and all.

Saint Crispin Trunk Show

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Saint Crispin’s April 23rd and 24th from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm. Mr. Phillip Car Managing Director of Saint Crispin’s will be here to present the collection.

Founded in 1992 Saint Crispin’s is recognized as a leader in design and craftsmanship of fine European footwear. As such they only work with very fine selected partners around the world.

Leffot is very proud to be among this exclusive group. We have been chosen as the exclusive stockist in New York.

Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans, craftsmen and women. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. And while that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.

The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which is the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling the natural resting position of your foot.

The same attention to design goes into the styling of the shoes as well. Saint Crispin’s shoes are some of the most unique shoes produced, full of individualism and character.

The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.

This is the only Saint Crispin’s show in New York. We encourage you to take advantage of this special opportunity to meet Phillip Car and check out his extraordinary collection of shoes.
