Wedding Shoes in Action

Our friend John was kind enough to send me this great picture of him and his beautiful bride Katie taken in the Meatpacking District on their wedding day. They both look absolutely fantastic and very much in love. Congratulations to both of you.

Note the brown Gaziano & Girling Westbury’s John wore for the momentous occasion.

You can view some of our other wedding shoes here.

G&G’s Got Sole

I am quite excited as are many of the clients that have visited Leffot about the incredible Oak Bark sole that Tony Gaziano & Dean Girling have developed for their bench made collection. I know of no other RTW shoe that offers such a beautifully beveled waist.

This is the type of sole you would expect to find on a bespoke made shoe. The result is a tight waist that looks incredibly trim and elegant and a shoe that fits like a glove.

Shown here the Gaziano & Girling Mitchell in Black Calf on the TG73 Last.

Suede and the 21st Century

I like suede, its comfortable, rich looking, and easy to maintain. It’s also very tactile. Take for example my Gaziano & Girling Derwent’s on the MH71 last with crepe soles, they’re one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own (and I own a few pairs of shoes).

I find it interesting that more people pickup, touch, admire or just plain pet the suede shoes at Leffot than any others hmmmm……. Suede is season-less, it looks just as great in spring and summer as it does in fall and winter and isn’t it all about texture and color anyway?
