Edward Green trunk shows

Edward Green trunk show

Chicago

October 24 and 25

New York

October 27 and 28

At the end of October we will be hosting trunk shows with Edward Green in our Chicago and New York locations. Edward Green is regarded by many to make “the finest shoes in all of England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find. Having been in business for more than 120 years, Edward Green has become discreetly famous for the finest welted shoes.

Our EG shows are tremendously popular. We present the largest selection of samples assembled at any Edward Green show in North America. You will have your choice of models, lasts, leathers, colors, and soles for your made to order pair.

Appointments suggested.

Shoe Shine Tutorial

Attendees of the Chicago trunk show will have the pleasure of meeting Lauren Faulkner, master polisher at Edward Green. She will host a shoe shine tutorial at 1pm and 4:30pm on both days. She’ll demonstrate proper shoe shining techniques, as well as answer any questions you may have about caring for your shoes.

A complimentary shoe care kit will be provided. All you need to bring is your favorite pair of Edward Greens. Space is limited to twenty. If you’d like to attend, please email events@leffot.com with the date and time you’re interested in.

Corthay trunk show, today and tomorrow

Corthay trunk show

Today and tomorrow we are hosting a trunk show with renowned French shoemaker Corthay. We’ll have a number of samples on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size. Corthay’s made-to-order surcharge is waived for the duration of the show.

Corthay is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers. His shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

In 2010 he was awarded the honor of “Master of Art” by the government of France. The Master of Art designation of France, while not widely known in the States, is not bestowed lightly. In short, it means that the individual or firm is a cultural icon.

Wolverine x Leffot Natural CXL Re-stock

Wolverine x Leffot 1000 Mile Boot

Now back in stock, our collaboration with Wolverine on their classic 1000 Mile Boot. The Wolverine 1000 Mile shoe was created in a time when men were looking for authentic craftsmanship and footwear that would last. Advertised as comfortable enough to “give you 1,000 miles of wear,” the shoe became a wardrobe staple for men of the 20th century.

Based on Wolverine’s archival pattern, the 1000 Mile Boot is designed to meticulously replicate the original. Made in Horween’s natural Chromexcel with single leather soles, they’re Goodyear Welted to last years. Best of all, they’re made in America, just like the original.

Our pair is made in natural chromexcel by another one of America’s greats, Horween. Available only at Leffot.

Features: Natural Chromexcel, Single Leather Soles

Norman Vilalta re-stock

Untitled-2

Today we received a re-stock of Norman Vilalta’s brown derby and oxford. As part of his Savile Row Meets Rock ’n’ Roll Collection, these shoes combine a classic pattern with rugged Gumlite soles in a modern deconstruction of the dress shoe. Made in patinated pebble grain calfskin, they’re undeniably unique but eminently wearable in a variety of situations. Any shoe from Norman Vilalta is a work of art, and these belong in your personal collection.
