Alden Captoe Balmoral, Black Calfskin

The black captoe balmoral is the most classic style of dress shoe and is appropriate for any social function. We’re now stocking a pair from Alden in the Hampton last.

If you wear suits regularly, the captoe bal can be a standby, the kind of shoe that will look classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle, classic compliment to a serious wardrobe.

If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe bal is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.

Rider Boot Co. Richmond Boot Restock

The beautiful Rider Richmond Boot has just been restocked in Black. The boot was originally made to order for a client, but we received so many requests that we made it a stock shoe. It’s now one of our most popular styles.

This incredibly versatile boot is made from Black Horween Shell Cordovan and Black Scotch Grain Calfskin. Sestriere soles, speed hooks, and Rider’s 42 last make it easy to wear and use.

Ivy Loafer, Black Cordovan

There really is something to be said for simplicity. It takes great design and execution to pull it of successfully. In terms of footwear, our Ivy loafers are basically as simple as a leather shoe gets, utilizing a few details that put these shoes front and center.

Made in lustrous black Horween shell cordovan, each pair of Ivy loafers is meticulously sewn by hand. The simple design allows the deep shine of the leather to resonate in the subtle folds of the toe and wide expanse of the shoe’s unadorned vamp.

With a little aging, this unlined shoe will mould to your feet, developing an individual character of its own. These are so lightweight, flexible and soft you may not want to take them off.

Our Ivy Loafers are made exclusively for Leffot by the good folks at Rancourt & Co. Lewiston, Maine.
