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 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.

Edward Green Camden

Fall is upon us, and that means it’s time to break out the boots. We’ve just started receiving our fall shipments, and among them was this gem from Edward Green, the Camden. It’s a short chelsea boot that we’ve made in mink suede, and is perhaps the ultimate casual boot. They’re easy to slip on, and pair perfectly with jeans. And like so many other suede shoes, they’re incredibly comfortable.
