We’re back from vacation and what a treat to have these new saddle shoes arrive. Made expressly for Leffot by Alden, saddle shoes are as American as it gets and black and whiskey is a great combination. We designed these on natural plantation crepe soles for all day comfort and all weather wear-ability.
I wore my Color 8 saddle shoes around London and Paris to rave reviews it’s just such a classic look and I couldn’t help but notice the prevalence of American products in both cities.

We received a small run of the Edward Green Sandringham in Horween Whiskey shell cordovan or crup as they say across the pond. We had ordered more but as with all things cordovan availability is the rule. We’ll receive the balance of our order at some point in the future when more Whiskey shells are to be had.
These shoes are absolutely stunning due to both the beauty of the leather and the skill with which EG handles shell cordovan, they’re simply irresistible.
