Leffot Pre-owned: A Cut of Cordovan

A selection of rare shell cordovan colors are now available as part of our Pre-owned program, in limited sizes.

Shell cordovan is ideal for making beautiful, enduring footwear, and our friends at Alden of New England have perfected its use. One of the ways they’ve done this is by using shells tanned only by Horween Leather Company in Chicago, Illinois. Add to that a group of rare colors and you have a very special combination.
