Alden x Leffot Hudson Captoe

These captoe oxfords aren’t your typical pair of Aldens. We’ve combined supple dark brown Regina calfskin with an antique welt and commando soles for a mashup that’ll keep things elegant through the worst weather. You can wear them with a suit or jeans — it’s your call.

Edward Green Chelsea and Piccadilly restock

For many years Edward Green has been famous for making classic English shoes. We’ve just restocked two of their signatures — the Chelsea and the Piccadilly. Both are made in EG’s versatile Dark Oak calfskin, which pairs well with nearly any color. These are two of the most beautiful and useful shoes you can find. They’re elegant, subtle, and never go out of style.

Alden Captoe Balmoral, Brown Calfskin

If you wear suits regularly, the captoe balmoral is a standby, the kind of shoe that is classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle compliment to a serious wardrobe.

If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe balmoral is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.

Alden x Leffot Cooney Boot, Re-stock

Our Cooney boot is back. Made expressly for Leffot, this snuff suede captoe boot on the Aberdeen last features low profile flat Flex Welt soles, brown agatine eyelets, and speed hooks. It’s a masterpiece of a shoe, designed and named after one of our particularly discerning customers.

The Cooney is a soft, comfortable, flexible boot that looks great with basically any outfit, from jeans to casual suits. Its perforated cap toe and tapered look add to the formality, while the incredibly beautiful snuff suede brings texture and rich color to the party.

Edward Green Chelsea, Mink Suede

There are some men who say there isn’t anything that doesn’t look great with a pair of brown suede shoes. We wouldn’t couldn’t agree more. Mink suede is lush in texture and vibrant in color, but subtle enough to pair with just about any hue.

On the Chelsea model, a classic, equally versatile cap toe balmoral, this shoe is just about as good as it gets when it comes to wearability and comfort. Made with the masterful craftsmanship of Edward Green, these will compliment your clothing for years to come.
