Alden Color 8 Longwing

The Longwing Blucher is not exclusive to Alden, in fact it’s been in production in the US and UK for many years. It is however a very American style and is often referred to around Northampton as the American wingtip. Which is to say this shoe has All American staying power.

Alden of New England has perfected the use of shell cordovan in making the LWB. One of the ways they do that is by using cordovan tanned only by Horween Leather Company in Chicago Illinois. The most classic longwing you can find is made with Horween’s rich Color 8 Cordovan. Because of it’s consistent popularity, we will now be stocking this shoe, known in the business as the 975, in wide E widths as well as the standard D.

Viberg Service Boot

Viberg’s Service Boot takes the strengths of Horween Shell Cordovan leather and puts them to excellent use. As a durable and beautiful leather, the material can work as well in a work-boot context as it can in a formal context. This captoe boot is both, a boot that will stand up to serious treatment while still looking really fantastic.

Viberg Service Boot

Before the end of 2012 we are expecting to receive Viberg’s Service Boot in Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan. These are classic cap toe boots made to get dirty and stand up to the elements.

The shell cordovan leather is the special touch: extremely durable yet lustrous and low maintenance. These shoes can take a beating and still look and feel terrific for years.

Viberg is a heritage bootmaker in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and it has carried a tradition of quality and craftsmanship across three generations. The Service Boot is inspired by footwear from the company’s archives, so it embodies their tradition of style as well as the lasting quality that the brand represents.

This is one of the only shell cordovan boots Viberg has made in recent years and they are being made exclusively for Leffot.

These boots are SOLD OUT

Alden Color 8 Cordovan

We’ve recently received new stock in two of the most classic Alden cordovan shoes, the plain toe blucher and the leisure handsewn loafer.

Both are excellent entryways into the world of Alden shoes as well as perfect staple shoes for everyday use. Color 8 is Horween’s most popular and most versatile cordovan color, pairing well with almost any color and texture.

Shell cordovan leather is known for its low maintenance and durability, so both of these shoes can literally serve you for decades. Cordovan is a supple leather with a memory that responds to use, so the shoes will only get more comfortable and better looking with age.

Leffot Ivy Loafer Color 8

The loafer is the best style of shoe for summer, hands down. They are easy to put on when you just want to take a stroll outside, they can be worn easily without socks, and they expose your ankle to the breeze to keep your feet cool.

Our Ivy Loafers are no exception. Moccasin constructed from unlined shell cordovan, they cradle your foot while being light, flexible, and comfortable. Newly stocked in Color 8 Shell, these will gain an aged glow and form to the shape of your foot over time.

Alden x Leffot Color 8 Tanker Re-Issue

One year to the day we’ve re-issued one of our most popular and versatile Alden x Leffot boots. Our Tanker or NST (Norwegian Split Toe) in Horween Color 8 shell cordovan is simply one of those styles that have mass appeal and why?

Maybe because the deep rich color of the shells combined with the antiqued edge commando soles and old fashioned handsewn vamp is timeless.
