Alden first introduced us to Horween Natural Chromexcel in January 2010. Since then our Natural Longwing’s and Natural Indy boots have become something of a staple at Leffot and we have received delivery of both models.
Natural CXL is a wonderful leather the color is totally versatile and goes great with denim, or khaki for a perfect casual look. With wear and care it develops a patina that looks lived in and rich and much better with age. Here’s an example of our Natural LWB.
The LWB is on the Barrie last and the Indy is on the Trubalance.

TruBalance Last, Natural Chromexcel, Commando Soles
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
