Viberg x Leffot G.F. Boot Pre-order

The G.F. boot is a rugged, eye-catching plain toe that we’ve made in three different colors of bullhide. With brass eyelets, Dainite soles, and an unstructured toe, the G.F. is just as intense and lovable as its canine namesake. Wear them in the worst conditions and you’ll find that your feet have made it through just fine.

Gaziano & Girling Westbury and Strand

Gaziano & Girling makes elegant, modern shoes using the time-tested Goodyear construction. If you’re looking for shoes that put a twist on their classic roots, look no farther than G&G. The Strand is an austere oxford made in Espresso calfskin with a swan’s neck stitch. The shoe’s six eyelets offer snug support with a higher vamp.

The Westbury is a wholecut made on the chiseled TG73 last in vintage rioja calfskin. Set apart by the hand-stitching around the lacing quarters, they’re the ideal dress shoe to wear with charcoal, navy, or grey.

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Dean Girling this Friday, October 24, from 11 to 6. If you are a fan of G&G we hope you’ll find the time to visit and meet Dean.

Alden x Leffot Cooney Boot, Sage Nubuck

The Cooney is a comfortable and flexible boot that looks great with a variety of outfits. Its perforated cap toe and tapered last add to its formality, while the soft sage nubuck gives it a unique hue. It’s a masterpiece of a shoe named after one of our particularly discerning customers.

Corthay Chukka, Burgundy Camel

Corthay’s Chukka takes Corthay’s highly individual style and applies it to a very versatile shoe. Made in soft camel skin, the boots’ sleek last and unique color makes them both versatile and distinctive. Wear them with jeans or wear them with a suit — either way, you’ll have the sharpest shoes in the room.

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.

Edward Green Dover and Westminster

The Dover and Westminster are two of our favorite and most popular Edward Greens. This fall, we’ve made these two models in EG’s country calf on Dainite soles. Both are incredibly versatile and hard-wearing shoes that look great with jeans, chinos, cords, and suits.

Corthay Trunk Show

Our fall trunk show with Corthay is today from 11 to 7 and tomorrow from 11 to 6. Pierre is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers; his shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

Pierre will be here to accept custom ready-to-wear and bespoke orders. When a master shoemaker visits it’s a rare opportunity, and one you won’t want to miss.
