Deer Bone Restock

We’ve just restocked our popular deer bone for polishing cordovan. The oils inside this deer bone, when rubbed into shell cordovan leather, will restore uniformity to the color and smooth over scratches. It can even remove some small creases and welts. This is the secret weapon for polishing shell cordovan shoes.

Viberg Service Boot Pre-Order, Color 8 Shell Cordovan

UPDATE: This pre-order is sold out.

Viberg’s Service Boot takes the strengths of Horween Shell Cordovan leather and puts them to excellent use. As a durable and beautiful leather, the material can work as well in a workboot context as it can in a formal context. This captoe boot is both — a boot that will stand up to serious treatment while still looking fantastic. After this run, these boots may be retired.

Alden x Leffot Dover, Color 8 Shell Cordovan

It’s no secret that we love shell cordovan, and since the Dover is one of our favorite shoes, we decided to combine the two to create these unlined color 8 bluchers. They’re on the comfortable flex soles, which give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier than shoes with rubber soles. If you’re a fan of Alden’s classic PT blucher, these Dovers are the logical next step.

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.
