Crockett & Jones serves up this snazzy scotch grain leather for Division Road in two distinct styles. First, their classic Coniston country derby boot, crafted on the 325 last, bottomed with a 360 storm welt and Itshide commando soles.
Then there’s the Exeter, a cap-toed oxford built on the 375 last. In an unconventional twist, it’s made with a 360 storm welt and Ridgeway soles.
Do you know what “nemesis” means? Well, other than Brick Top’s crude-yet-vivid definition in Snatch, it also refers to some pretty dope leather from Italian tannery Badalassi Carlo. This veg-tanned cowhide is a firm-tempered aniline leather that has been drum-stained and finished with a light glaze, giving it a really rustic yet vibrant appearance. Oak Street is really digging this Nemesi Cotto—so much so that they’ve applied it to four of their core styles in a limited-edition offering, each with subtle, thoughtful details like tonal stitching and decorative tacks on the soles.
Here we have the Field Boot, made on the Elston last with a 360 storm welt and Dr. Sole nitrile cork half soles.
Then there’s the Cap-Toe Lakeshore Boot, built on the Lakeshore last with a 270 flat welt and Dr. Sole nitrile cork half soles.
Next, the Cap-Toe Trench Boot is constructed on the Elston last. This iteration is made with a 270 flat welt and Vibram 700 nitrile cork soles.
Finally, this Elston-lasted Trench Oxford is bottomed with a 360 storm welt and Vibram 700 nitrile cork soles.
Named in tribute to Frederick Law Olmsted—a landscape architect who designed many of the iconic parks and public spaces of Chicago—this Michigan Boot is built on the Plaza last in a chocolatey suede, and bottomed with a 360 flat welt and double oiled leather soles.
Leffot will be receiving the first-ever Rancourt Gilman Camp-Moc made with Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan. (The picture above is a mockup.) The Gilman is made on the 800 last and features Rancourt’s proprietary camp-moc sole.
This limited-edition LHS is crafted on the Van last. Made with deadstock tan nubuck leather and fully lined, it’s bottomed with a 360 flat welt and single Waterloc soles. Just a few sizes left.
Made with a natural horsehide, the Avoriaz padded-collar hiker seems ready for the French Alps thanks to the 360 Norwegian welt and commando soles.
Built on the Trubalance last, this Indy Boot is the first Alden from Lost & Found to be made with a cavity wedge sole. A solid take on the style, especially with the brass eyelets paired with the snuff suede.
L&F also received these exclusive PTBs in dark-green Loden suede. Constructed on the Barrie last, they’re made with a 360 pre-stitch reverse welt and plantation crepe soles.
Made on the 4444 last, Tricker’s signature Bourton derby gets outfitted by The Bureau with a 360 storm welt and Vibram 2060 wedge soles. Available in Acorn Antique…
…and their classic C Shade Gorse.
