Edward Green Trunk Show, March 21 and 22

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Edward Green this coming Monday and Tuesday, March 21 and 22. Edward Green is regarded by many to make “the finest shoes in all of England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find. Having been in business for more than 120 years, Edward Green has become discreetly famous for the finest welted shoes.

Our EG shows are tremendously popular. We present the largest selection of samples assembled at any Edward Green show in North America. You will have your choice of models, lasts, leathers, colors, and soles for your made to order pair.

We recommend scheduling an appointment for the trunk show. Email us at events@leffot.com for more information.

Complimentary Shoe Shine Tutorial
Lauren Faulkner, master polisher at Edward Green, will host a shoe shine tutorial during the show. At 1pm and 5:30pm on both days, she’ll demonstrate proper shoe shining techniques, as well as answer any questions you may have about caring for your shoes. A complimentary shoe care kit will be provided, so all you need to bring is your favorite pair of Edward Greens.

Space is limited to twenty. If you’d like to attend, please email events@leffot.com with the date and time you’re interested in.

Now In Stock: Wolverine x Leffot 1000 Mile Boot, Natural Chromexcel

Our exclusive collaboration with Wolverine is now in stock: the 1000 Mile Boot in Horween Natural Chromexcel. You won’t find this anywhere else.

The Wolverine 1000 Mile shoe was created in a time when men were looking for authentic craftsmanship and footwear that would last. Advertised as comfortable enough to “give you 1,000 miles of wear,” the shoe became a wardrobe staple for men of the 20th century.

Based on Wolverine’s archival pattern, the 1000 Mile Boot is designed to meticulously replicate the original. Best of all, they’re goodyear welted and made in America, just like the original.

John Lobb Philip II Re-Stock

We’ve just received a restock of John Lobb’s Philip II in Dark Brown Museum calfskin. It’s a classic, understated captoe whose elegance can be seen in its beveled waist, a feature of all Prestige collection shoes, and in the subtle punching on its cap, which makes the shoe slightly less formal than the City II. They’re versatile and elegant, and perfect for wearing with a suit, but also not out of place with jeans.

Saint Crispin’s 105 Oxford

The 105 is a classic oxford that goes well with suits and separates. Made on the Classic Last, they are subtle and elegant, a strong contrast to some of the aggressive styling you see these days. If you buy only one pair of dress shoes, it should be these.
