Father’s Day Gift Ideas: Day Three

Summer is the perfect excuse to wear white shoes, and these cream nubuck longwings make for a classic casual look. The red micro soles make the shoes very lightweight. Combined with cream nubuck, they’re soft and comfortable straight from the box. Alden longwings are classics, and this pair is no exception.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas: Day Two

We stock a variety of shoe care products from Abbeyhorn, who have produced horn products sine 1749. Each horn is unique in its color and visual texture, making them great gifts that can be passed from generation to generation. The carving process requires considerable skill, requiring the carver to work with the horn while carving to bring out the special quality of each. No two are exactly alike.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is June 21st. This week we are posting gift suggestions from Leffot to help you show the Dad in your life how much you appreciate him.

Today we offer these exquisite shoehorns produced in the U.K. by Abbeyhorn, which has been producing horn products sine 1749. We now have in stock shoehorns hand crafted from African Oxen* using the same methods of manufacturing that hasn’t changed in centuries.

The process requires considerable skill of the horn worker from the first cut of the horn to ensure that the resultant shoehorn becomes a much-cherished item.

Leffot is currently stocking three sizes 7.5, 12, 18 inches all of which are unique in color, extremely lightweight and incredibly beautiful.

*No animals are ever killed solely for the horn; they are a by-product of the meat industry.

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. “Mark Twain.
