Alden x Leffot Dearborn Boot

Alden x Leffot Dearborn Boot

To commemorate our first anniversary in Chicago, we’ve made this boot in color 8 shell cordovan and dark brown Regina calf. They’re named after Dearborn Street, where our home in the Monadnock building is located.

As part of our anniversary celebration, a pair of shoe trees is included with each pair of boots.

This pair of color 8 longwings is one of our favorite Alden x Leffot shoes. The color 8 shell cordovan longwing is the “classic” Alden shoe, a monolith of American style and versatility. Our updated version is only slightly changed from the original, but the change makes all the difference.

Made with an antiqued sole edge and per-stitched reverse welt, the shoe is lustrous and sophisticated. Built on the Barrie last with oil soaked double waterlock soles for a softer, more flexible fit, they are sure to improve with age.

The Alden Dover in brown chromexcel is an excellent choice for an easy dress shoe. Because they’re unlined, they are extremely cool and comfortable. These shoes feel like slippers from the moment you first slip them on. And unlike rubber sole shoes, the leather Flex soles give them the added versatility of being slightly dressier.
