Made with a textured black calfskin and durable, comfortably soft crepe soles, this Alden longwing is a shoe that perfectly straddles the line between casual and dressed up. Wear it with jeans, khakis, or any number of dress slacks.

Longwings have been around for years because they’re classic and versatile. They are time tested and proven and belong in every wardrobe. Fashion goes in and out of style but classic is forever.

Alden x Leffot Greenwich Boots, Reverse Hunting Green Chamois

Alden x Leffot Greenwich Boots, Reverse Hunting Green Chamois

Once again we’ve taken a classic look and added a little roughness. With Alden’s wingtip boot design we’ve utilized reverse chamois leather. Using the backside of this oiled leather reveals a unique, almost sueded texture. Chamois leather is a “fat-liquored” nubuck by Horween, made for increased durability and water resistance. With a commando sole, this is a great boot to liven up those dull winter days on the horizon.

One pair is in Horween’s color 8 shell cordovan, and the other is in tobacco chamois, which is an oiled nubuck that’s great for foul weather.

Introducing the Quoddy x Leffot Christopher St. Collection

Quoddy x Leffot

Introducing the Christopher St. Collection, an exclusive collaboration with Quoddy. We’ve taken the popular Tukabuk, Wabanaki, and Perry Boot models and made them in three colors of Horween’s oiled Chamois leather. Chamois is an oiled nubuck that’s water resistant and very soft. Paired with crepe or Vibram soles, these shoes are perfect for wet, nasty days. Each has a contrasting backstay, cream laces, and leather midsole.

All of Quoddy’s shoes are moccasin stitched, and their method of construction creates a shoe that functions like a glove for your foot. It surrounds your foot in supple leather, and allows your foot muscles, bones, and tendons to support you as they were intended to, while offering protection, cushioning, and style.

Alden Chamois Longwing Blucher

Here’s something you might not have expected. We’ve taken Alden’s classic longwing blucher design, used for decades on heavy cordovan brogues, and made it with Horween oiled Tobacco Chamois leather.

Along with commando soles, these shoes are a surprisingly elegant mix of rugged and dress shoe style. With water resistant leather and a heavy duty lugged sole that can take a beating and keep you standing, these shoes will help keep you dry and looking sharp.

If you don’t “just” want to wear boots all winter, these LWB’s are the way to go
