Alden x Leffot Natural CXL Longwing Restock

Alden first introduced us to Horween Natural Chromexcel in January 2010. Since then our Natural Longwing’s have become something of a staple at Leffot and we have just restocked.

Natural CXL is a wonderful leather the color is totally versatile and goes great with denim, or khaki for a perfect casual look. With wear and care it develops a patina that looks lived in and rich and much better with age. Here’s an example of our Natural LWB.

Alden x Leffot Natural CXL

Alden first introduced us to Horween Natural Chromexcel in January 2010. Since then our Natural Longwing’s and Natural Indy boots have become something of a staple at Leffot and we have received delivery of both models.

Natural CXL is a wonderful leather the color is totally versatile and goes great with denim, or khaki for a perfect casual look. With wear and care it develops a patina that looks lived in and rich and much better with age. Here’s an example of our Natural LWB.

The LWB is on the Barrie last and the Indy is on the Trubalance.

Quoddy x Leffot Grizzly Boot – Natural CXL

Just in time for the cool autumn weather, we’ve received a new boot from Quoddy in classically weather ready leather. Handmade in Maine, these six eyelet boots in Horween Natural Chromexcel will darken with age and wear. The deerskin linings and stitched in tongue bellows will keep out debris and keep you warm without bulk.

These boots are detailed with brick Vibram soles designed expressly for Quoddy to provide maximum cushion and traction. Treat with MPB Leather Dressing for all weather protection and pair with the Natural CXL Elston Belt for total coordination. Winter’s coming don’t be caught off guard.

Natural Indy

Indy boots come in all shapes and colors but none as natural as these. When Alden told us about Natural Chromexcel® last winter we were all over it, and ordered up these Indy’s in a heartbeat. These boots; made to our specifications are on the TruBalance last with cork neoprene soles and 360º natural flat welts.

I own three pairs of Indy boots and it looks like it’s going to be four soon not to mention what we have lined up for spring, but we’ll save that for another post.
