Alden x Leffot Dover, Black Alpine

The Alden x Leffot Dover in black alpine grain calfskin is an excellent choice for an easy dress shoe. Because they’re unlined, they are extremely cool and comfortable. These shoes feel like slippers from the moment you first slip them on. And unlike rubber sole shoes, the single Flex soles give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier.

Alden x Leffot Black Alpine Grain Longwing

The Alden x Leffot Longwing in Black Alpine Grain is back in stock.

We chose black Alpine Grain and put it over soles of plantation crepe for all weather wear-ability and comfort. These have the heft and guts to take on the foulest days and the cushion to keep you bounding along.

Longwings have been around for years because they’re classic and versatile. They are time tested and proven and belong in every wardrobe. Fashion goes in and out of style but classic is forever.

Alden Black Alpine Grain Longwing Pre-order

We are currently accepting pre-orders for the next delivery of Alden x Leffot Black Alpine Grain Longwings. We anticipate delivery sometime Spring/Summer 2013.

This shoe is one of our oldest Alden makeups, a subtle and hearty take on the classic longwing. Made with a textured black calfskin and durable, comfortably soft crepe soles, it’s a shoe that perfectly straddles the line between casual and dressed up. Wear it with jeans, khakis, or any number of dress slacks.

Pre-orders will be done in two stages. Stock D and E widths can be ordered with a non-refundable, non-transferable 20% deposit through our online shop. You will be contacted once the shoes arrive for final payment.

Sizes that are not available on our pre-order page can be requested by contacting us via email at by Sunday, March 17th. We will advise you if Alden can make a pair in your requested size.

We hope this policy makes it easier for you to get the Alden makeups in sizes that are difficult to find.
