Our Alden x Leffot Color 8 Cordovan Plain Toe Blucher is the ultimate staple shoe. It’s both simple and elegant, casual and austere, rugged and refined. Made with Genuine Horween Burgundy shell cordovan, its deep hue will match with nearly any color.
The comfort of Alden’s plantation crepe soles and cordovan’s easy maintenance and notorious long life will make these an everyday shoe for decades.
We have restocked on The Alden Dover Blucher, which 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.
We’ve reissued our Alden x Leffot Greenwich Boot in Tobacco Chamois. This is only the second release and they’re just as handsome as the first.
Alden’s elegant Greenwich wingtip boot is made on the Barrie last, arguably the most comfortable and best fitting of all Alden lasts.
The uppers are Horween Tobacco Chamois a fat liquored, mill dyed leather essentially an oiled nubuck that not only looks great but is ideal for wet weather wear, and is incredibly soft and supple, while agatine eyelets all the way up make for a simple unified look.
We built these boots on Double Flex Welt soles, which are oil soaked for flexibility but also have a high degree of water resistance.
One of our favorite Alden x Leffot shoes has returned. 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.

Alden first introduced us to Horween Natural Chromexcel in January 2010. Since then our Natural Longwing’s have become something of a staple at Leffot and we have just restocked.
Natural CXL is a wonderful leather the color is totally versatile and goes great with denim, or khaki for a perfect casual look. With wear and care it develops a patina that looks lived in and rich and much better with age. Here’s an example of our Natural LWB.
