“Take Ivy,” is a photo-book released in 1965 featuring photos by T. Hayashida of Ivy League campuses. The book is considered to be the bible of the Ivy League look in Japan. Thus inspired we created our original Leffot “Ivy” loafer in homage to the coolest loafer of the sixties, the “Venetian”.
Clean, smooth and simple this loafer is much more than it appears to be on the surface. Made of Genuine Horween unlined shell cordovan they are incredibly supple, flexible and light, a joy to slip on and loaf around in. The amount of handwork that goes into a simple pair like these is staggering. Made in Maine and completely hand sewn these shoes are made on true moccasin construction so your feet are wrapped in cordovan top and bottom. In addition it takes the sewer 70% more time to sew a cordovan shoe because there is simply NO margin for error.
Unlined shell cordovan loafers are not easily found. We think you’ll agree these may well be the perfect shoe for spring and summer wear.
These shoes are available in Natural, Dark Cognac, Navy and Color 6 in US sizes Medium widths.
