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.
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.
