Alden x Leffot Shortwing Boot, Snuff Suede

Snuff suede is one of our favorite leathers, and these shortwing boots, the Greenwich boots’ first cousin, look stunning in snuff. Instead of the rounded toe box of the Barrie last, they’re made on the Plaza, with its square toe. We’ve done them on comfortable flex soles, and combined with suede, these shortwings are the ideal fall boot.

Alden x Leffot Snuff Suede LWB, Restock

Doesn’t every shoe simply look better in snuff suede? The Alden Longwing Blucher is no exception. These shoes are a pleasure to wear not only because they’re so damn good looking, but they also feel like slippers. The combination of velvety soft suede and the flexible double waterlock soles will have you wanting to wear these everyday.

Alden Dover, Snuff Suede

The Alden Dover blucher is a dream to wear. Made in unlined snuff suede there is no softer, lighter and more flexible welted shoe out there. These are ideal for spring and summer wear.

The shoes feel like slippers from the moment you first slip them on. And unlike rubber sole shoes, the leather Flex Welt soles give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier.

The Robb Report, April 2013

The Robb Report asked us which chukka boot we like best for spring. Hands down it’s the Alden snuff suede 1493 on Flex Welt soles. Not only is the unlined suede and flex soles incredibly comfortably, the color is super versatile.

Thanks to The Robb Report for choosing an American classic chukka as an “Element of Style.”

Alden x Leffot George Boot, Snuff Suede

We love to make shoes in snuff suede. Its got a bright and vibrant look to it, its supremely soft, and its color and texture go with just about anything, especially denim and flannel.

This time around, we decided to make Alden’s George boot with snuff suede. Its an incredibly comfortable shoe, but because of their soft square toe and sleek last, can be dressed up as well as down.
