Saint Crispin’s Trunk Show

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Saint Crispin’s October 8th and 9th from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm. Mr. Phillip Car, Managing Director of Saint Crispin’s, will be here to present the collection.

Founded in 1992, Saint Crispin’s is recognized as a leader in design and craftsmanship of fine European footwear. As such, they only work with very fine selected partners around the world.

Leffot is very proud to be among this exclusive group. We have been chosen as the exclusive stockist in New York.

Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans — craftsmen and women. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. And while that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.

The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which means the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling the natural resting position of your foot.

The same attention to design goes into the styling of the shoes as well. Saint Crispin’s shoes are some of the most unique shoes produced, full of individualism and character.

The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.

This is the only Saint Crispin’s show in New York. We encourage you to take advantage of this special opportunity to meet Phillip Car and check out his extraordinary collection of shoes.

Alden Pre-orders

We’ve just received confirmation from Alden for four new pre-orders: the Cooney boot, the PT boot, a Natural CXL Indy boot, and a navy suede LWB.

The Cooney boot is an ultra versatile, ultra comfortable boot that is as good looking as it is useful. Made with a subdued cap toe design and subtle but distinctive snuff suede, these will get you through just about any situation looking your best.

Our PT boot is a combination of a number of our favorite Alden things: brown chromexcel leather, the Barrie last, commando soles, brass eyelets, and a plain toe. All told, these boots are extremely comfortable and stylish. Because they’re made with Horween Chromexcel and lugged commando soles, they are as much at home on a hike as they are out to dinner. And did we mention they’re an instant classic?

The Natural Chromexcel Indy Boot is one of our most popular Alden makeups. Made with Horween’s extremely wearable Chromexcel leather, it will gain character and depth as it ages. Built on commando soles, it will be durable and sure-footed in any number of situations.

No one makes longwing bluchers like Alden, and these navy suede LWBs are guaranteed to turn heads. They’re fully equipped with lush navy suede, contrasting brass eyelets, and an antique edge. The Barrie last is roomy and comfortable, and combined with the softness of suede, it makes for a super easy fit, and in our opinion one good looking pair of shoes.

Cooney Boot, Aberdeen Last, Snuff Suede, Flex Soles
PT Boot, Barrie Last, Brown Chromexcel, Brass Eyelets, Commando Sole
Indy Boot, Trubalance Last, Horween Natural Chromexcel, Commando Soles
Longwing Blucher, Barrie Last, Navy Suede, Antiqued Edge, Double Waterlock Soles

Alden x Leffot Saddle Shoes

Today we received two pairs of saddle shoes from Alden. The first is a new makeup for us in Loden and Brown Alpine Grain Calfskins, and the second is a restock of the popular Color 8 Shell Cordovan and Brown Alpine Grain shoe. These preppy pairs are made for us on the Barrie last with oil-soaked flex soles. They’re light as a feather and look great with jeans and khakis, as well as gray or navy slacks.

At the height of their popularity during the fifties and sixties Saddle Shoes were a staple of preppy Ivy Leaguers’. The preppy doctrine Take Ivy includes an Ivy Wardrobe Directory, which lists the following shoes.

Barrie Last, Loden Calfskin/Brown Alpine Grain Calfskin, Flex Welt Soles
Barrie Last, Color 8 Shell Cordovan/Brown Alpine Grain, Flex Welt Soles
