Alden for Leffot – Gatsby Longwing Blucher

Leffot have been eyeing up an Alden two-tone shoe for a while. Now it’s finally arrived in all its dandy glory. Of course, these automatically take you back to the early twentieth century – that pure white panel might be a little too gleaming for most folk, especially in contrast to the tan. However these incredible shoes should not be ignored as just a costume piece for revivalists at the Governors Island Jazz -Age Lawn Party. Wear them right and they can be pulled off the shiny new modern world.

Leffot comment “Spectator shoes date from the nineteenth century but reached the height of popularity during the 1920s and 1930s. Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald our Gatsby is crisp and clean in burnished tan and white calfskin.” More here.
