New Quoddys!

We recently received new stock of one of our most popular Quoddy models, the Blucher. Available in black, brown, or color #8 chromexcel, the Blucher is a durable and casual shoe for versatile and comfortable wear. They’re made on charcoal camp soles and unlined for breathable comfort. They go great with jeans, khakis, or shorts in the summer.

We also received the Canoe Shoe, which combines a comfortable camp sole with the slip-on convenience of the Canoe Moc. There’s no need to worry about not looking your casual best in them, as they’re made with beautiful color #8 chromexcel leather and leather laces.

Alden Dover, Snuff Suede

The Alden Dover blucher is a dream to wear. Made in unlined snuff suede there is no softer, lighter and more flexible welted shoe out there. These are ideal for spring and summer wear.

The shoes feel like slippers from the moment you first slip them on. And unlike rubber sole shoes, the leather Flex Welt soles give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier.

Alden x Leffot Atom Blucher, Cigar Cordovan

Alden’s Atom Blucher is our favorite short wing. Originally made as part of their orthopedic line we tweaked this shoe to make it an all around champ. This new edition is in Horween Cigar shell cordovan a rich dark brown that gets better looking with age.

We detailed these shoes with versatility in mind; they can be worn equally well casually or for business. The soles are Alden’s single leather bone bottom with antiques edges, which are both light and flexible. These shoes are beyond versatile and incredibly comfortable.

Gaziano & Girling Hove

Peccary leather is often used for gloves. It’s light weight and softness make it perfect for the nimble action needed in the sensitive areas of the palm and fingers, and its surprising durability make it very useful for the constant gripping of objects and surfaces.

We’ve made Gaziano & Girling’s hand-stitched reverse split toe shoe, the Hove, in beautiful dark brown Peccary leather, the hide of the Peccary boar. These shoes have a uniquely textured finish, blucher style lacing, and single leather soles, making for a lightweight, supple, refined casual shoe.

Waverly and Barrow

Continuing in the vein of suede, the Waverly and Barrow are our own more refined take on the relaxed suede buck shoe. Both are excellent shoes for a smart casual look and very seasonal for this time of year, great with the thick textured weaves and drab landscapes of winter.

Made in England and available exclusively at Leffot these welted shoes are in stock in Cola, Tasmin, and Holborn suede.

Edward Green Cardiff

Suede shoes get a bad rap. It seems like guys are always talking about how they think they’ll get ruined. Contrary to popular opinion, quality suede is one of the most versatile and comfortable shoe leathers you can invest in. And it actually looks better with wear.

We’ve paired Edward Green’s classic captoe Cardiff blucher with fine-grained coffee suede, making it as fit for January as it is for June. Any time there isn’t salt or melting snow in the way, you can proudly wear these shoes. They pair great with just about any color or texture, from dusty summer linens to somber winter flannel.
