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. It is with this cordovan that we designed our two new LWB made expressly for Leffot.
Color 8 and Black shell cordovan is the backbone of any shoe collection and yet some men are without either. If you are a lover of cordovan and longwings these shoes are designed for you.

We drew from the Alden well once again and the result is our stunning new “Cooney” boot made in luxuriously soft snuff suede. Made expressly for Leffot these boots are on Alden’s tapered Aberdeen last and feature low profile flat Flex Welt soles, brown agatine eyelets and speed hooks.
To say these could be the most comfortable pair of boots you ever own is not an overstatement. The Cooney boots are ultra soft, lightweight, and flexible. The fact that they’re also smart as hell looking makes these a winner and all is well.
