We’ve just restocked our popular shell cordovan Bleecker Belt in black, color 8, bourbon, and mocca. Kreis makes these belts of genuine Horween shell corodvan, so they’re the perfect match to your longwings or plain to bluchers. They’ve crafted leather goods in Germany since 1963. There aren’t many shell belts around these days, and Kreis makes them as good as they get.

Back in stock: The L wallet

We’ve partnered with Kreis to make the L wallet in genuine Horween shell cordovan. It’s the natural evolution of the Fold — minimal, classic, 100% shell. With three slots for card or cash, it’s all you need to keep things organized.

The L is available in color 8, bourbon, and black. It can be made-to-order in color 4, mocca, cognac, green, and navy. Contact us if you’d like to make an L to order.

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.

This pair of color 8 longwings is one of our favorite Alden x Leffot shoes. The color 8 shell cordovan longwing is the “classic” Alden shoe, a monolith of American style and versatility. Our updated version is only slightly changed from the original, but the change makes all the difference.

Made with an antiqued sole edge and per-stitched reverse welt, the shoe is lustrous and sophisticated. Built on the Barrie last with oil soaked double waterlock soles for a softer, more flexible fit, they are sure to improve with age.

Features: Barrie Last, Color 8 Shell Cordovan, Double Waterlock Soles
