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.

Edward Green

Edward Green is regarded by many to make the “finest shoes in England for the discerning few.” We’ve just restocked of some their core collection: the Asquith, Piccadilly, and Chelsea. More classic English shoes would be hard to find.

Made in Northampton for over 125 years, Edward Green’s reputation has been built on elegant, handcrafted shoes. Benchmade for quality and comfort, they are the quintessential Goodyear welted English shoe. Care for them properly, and they’ll easily last fifteen years, if not more.

The Asquith is on the 888 smart square toe last, and the Chelsea is now available on the smart round 82 last.

Wildsmith Bloomsbury

Wildsmith was founded in 1847 in England by Matthew and Rebecca Wildsmith, and quickly gained a reputation for making fine footwear. Their quality and attention to detail earned them clientele such as John F. Kennedy, Prince Charles, and Cary Grant. The new era of Wildsmith is still made in Northampton in the tradition of Wildsmith past. Just as we’ve introduced other brands in the past, we’re the first to carry Wildsmith here in the US.

The Bloomsbury loafer was derived from a shoe originally designed for King George VI to wear around the house. It’s an iconic and timeless style that’s been copied by many. These come unlined, which makes them very comfortable for bare feet this summer and beyond. They’re the perfect casual shoe, but still dressy enough for a suit.

“You are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both.” —John Wildsmith

Edward Green Holborn

Patent leather is the ultimate material when it comes to formal wear. But it can also be worn less formally and is a chic look for summer.

The Edward Green Holborn in black patent leather and cement soles is a lightweight and soft shoe that can do double duty this summer.
