Leffot NYC

I stopped by one of my favorite footwear shops, Leffot. Located on a beautiful corner near the beginning of Christopher Street, Leffot is a lesson in uncluttered merchandising and expertly selected items. Chatting with owner Steven Taffel, his philosophy becomes quite clear- Great, well-made product and excellent, friendly service.

Some items of interest:
A trio of pieces in Natural Chromexcel. The makeups looked great in person and I thought the longwing turned out extremely well.

The Alden assortment for Autumn. I particularly liked the brown wingtip boot in Tobacco Chamois.

Ravello Cap-toe boot on the Grant last. Bet you didn’t know he had these.

While I was in the shop the mailman dropped off some Alden boxes. Steven opened them up to find a new makeup he had done. Alden calls these wingtips the Atom blucher. This pair is done in a burnished tan calf and are on the Tru-flare last. These turned out to be a great combination, making them one gorgeous pair of shoes. I was impressed.

    Great post. Those natural chromexcel chukkas look really good to me now. I suspect these photos you’ve posted look truer than many I’ve seen anywhere.

    I’m thinking about the natural chromexcel longwing reorder. What would you think about the Atom in natural chromexcel? Maybe Leffot or Unionmade would be interested in doing this.
