Like me, if you love shoes … Leffot is your shoe haven! Located on Christopher St. in New York, owner Steven Taffel carries upscale brands for the a discerning clientele featuring Edward Green, Alfred Sargent, Gaziano Girling, Rider Boot Company, Church’s, Alden and a few others. Steven also writes a great blog (http://blog.leffot.com/) where you can see detailed pictures of the gorgeous brands in the store.
On a recent visit to New York, I stopped by the store and was very impressed by the feel of the store. It is not your typical, traditional store with shelves but more like a relaxing place where you could sip on a single malt and spend hours looking at beautiful leather and suede footwear. Leffot carries a few stock styles and many others are MTO (made to order). I purchased 2 pairs and plan to take advantage of MTO in the future. From what I gathered, there is a small upcharge on MTO ($100-$200).
So much can be told from a gentleman’s shoes. They are what he stands in and stands for. If you are in New York, take the time to visit Steven. The shoes will draw you in and the service will keep you coming back!
