Edward Green is regarded by many to be “the finest shoes in 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 probably the finest welted shoes.
We recently received a shipment of Edward Green made-to-order shoes, and they’re as beautiful and elegant as ever. We present them here for your viewing pleasure.
We are proud to announce that we’re now stocking a selection of shoes from Norman Vilalta. As part of the Savile Row Meets Rock ’n’ Roll Collection, they combine classic patterns with rugged Gumlite soles in a modern deconstruction of the dress shoe. Each is made in a patinated pebble grain calfskin, which makes them undeniably unique but eminently wearable in a variety of situations. Any shoe from Norman Vilalta is a work of art, and these belong in your personal collection.
Headquartered in Vienna, Saint Crispin’s does not follow the Viennese tradition exclusively but produces a style which is appreciated all over the world.
All shoes are handmade by a small team of artisans — craftsmen and women — who have been highly trained within the company. Some key employees have been employed for nearly 20 years. This continuity reinforces the extremely high level of quality and consistency found in their shoes.
The 315 is a classic captoe oxford model in medium brown calfskin. It’s the kind of shoe that’s easy to wear because it’s so easy on the eyes. If you’re in need of an everyday workhorse, look no further.
The split toe is a classic shoe that’s highly versatile, as it looks organic with suits as well as denim. Saint Crispin’s model 508HA is no exception. We’ve made it on the chiseled last in light brown calfskin, which makes it stand out from your typical dark brown dress shoes. Plus, the handsewing along the vamp and toe make this pair particularly special.
You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Norman Vilalta on March 5 and 6 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm each day. Offering both bespoke and made-to-order shoes, Norman Vilalta is a classically trained shoemaker with a modern eye for detail.
Norman studied and practiced law for a number of years, but at 31 decided he wanted to pursue something that truly motivated him. In 2002, he moved from his home in Argentina to Florence, where he trained in the Stefano Bemer workshop. Since then he’s been crafting shoes in his workshop in Barcelona.
All of Norman’s shoes are unique creations that attest to his love of creating beautiful objects. They’re truly pieces of art, and Norman is a true artist, taking inspiration from sources as varied as Ferran Adrià to contemporary Nike sneakers.
Alongside some faces familiar to us here at Leffot (Phillip Car, Tony Gaziano, Dean Girling, Pierre Corthay, and Tommaso Melani, among others), Norman recently took part in the BeShoes event held at the Stefano Bemer workshop during Pitti Uomo 87. We’re proud to host Sr. Vilalta for his first US trunk show this March. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to come see his beautiful work.
This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling’s classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it’s tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.
Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans, craftsmen and women. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. And while that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.
We recently received a shipment of Saint Crispin’s Made to Order shoes and present them here for your viewing pleasure.
