Alden Madison x Stitchdown "Otis" Indy Boot - Dark Brown Calfskin - Double Waterlock Sole

Stitchdown x Alden Madison “Otis” Indy in Brown Calfskin: $685 (Preorder)

Hot off the hard drives of our CGI experts is a rendering of the upcoming Stitchdown x Alden Madison “Otis” Indy, now available for preorder. Our riff on the timeless Indy boot goes with the wildly comfortable, heavily oiled double waterlock leather outsole, chukka tan mocc stitching, and a dark brown calf upper (which Ben says is in pursuit of that “inimitable Old Calf Dress Shoe Patina”). Hope you dig ’em!

DR’s beloved Super Monkey is back and living up to its name once more in a three-pack headed off by this model sporting C.F. Stead’s unmatched—and newly even-more-weather-resistant—Repello snuff suede. While these are still, obviously, Tricker’s, the lightweight/long-lasting Vibram Morflex sole and Flexi-welt construction shaves off a ton of weight from the Northampton stalwart’s standard build.

Skoob’s lastest M43, this time in brown horsebutt on a leather sole + topy combo, was released at German retailer Stuf|f this week. All of Skoob’s boots are Goodyear welted in Tokyo, and if you’re ordering from outside the EU, you’ll get a tidy little VAT refund.

Leffot x Rancourt Bit Ivy in Whiskey Shell Cordovan: $795

Fresh on the shelves and going fast is the latest shell model from Leffot and Rancourt. Built on the 114 last, we’ve got an intriguing blend of Rancourt’s signature beefroll moccasin loafer plus horsebit style. This loafer is unlined, with a leather sole.

Leffot x Alden - Leydon Penny Loafer - Hummus Suede

Leffot x Alden Leydon Penny in Humus Suede: $645

And lest Leffot lose out on the chance to collaborate on another loafer, they’ve let loose an Alden model on the Leydon last. This pattern has a single leather sole and squared off stitching on he counter. It’s being offered in (among other leathers) a finely napped Hummus Suede.

Viberg x Withered Fig - 2030 Mule - Chestnut Calf Suede

Withered Fig x Viberg Mule in Chestnut Calf Suede: $650

Virginia-based Withered Fig doesn’t want a fear of loafers to exclude anyone from loafing around this summer—so they’ve brought two new Viberg Mules. 360-degree Goodyear welted on Lactae Hevea natural rubber soles, these are built on the 2030 last. Bear in mind that despite the 2030-ness, the laceless fit will differ from from a service boot-style pattern (go smaller). Available in chestnut calf suede…Viberg x Withered Fig - 2030 Mule - Natural CXL
