I saw the Leffot Instagram post on June 13th with the Cigar Indy's and Ravllo Day Tripper. I emailed those folks about the Indy's and moments later they responded and included me on the order. No secret list that i'm aware of or anything like that. At that point i had only bought one pair of shoes(Natty Chromexcel Indy's) from them so i was far from a "preferred" client. For me it was right place, right time. Plain and simple.

Very similar experience here. The folks at Leffot are very pleasant and reasonable.

+1 Totally agree.

Oh, I've had pleasant interactions with them in store and over the phone. I guess they stopped announcing certain makeups via email. A lot of retailers seem to be keeping to IG these days. Ah well.

I love Leffot. I was there today.

I rarely do this, but hey have a cigar indy available in 9E if anyone is that size.

Also they have a ton of new non - cordovan makeups (chamois boots on commando sole and Grant last, burgundy calfskin punch captoe boots on crepe, brown suede six eyelet chukka on crepe, etc)

It seems that they arent allowed to actually speak of the rare makeups. Cryptic Instagram posts seem to be ok. So these days, if its Whiskey, Cigar or Ravello you really either have to just ask or stumble upon them blindly.

Nice! Would you say the epaulet one has lightened?

post #98873 of 122416
Ah, Instagram. I don't gave an IG account which is why I don't see some of these. Oh well.

I have store credit at Leffot from returning the chamois captoes but none of the 3 new offerings interest me. I'll keep waiting until the right make up comes along.

Haha these guys also have a stack of handwritten notes from the last 5 years all requesting rare shell.

Side note: congrats on the 379x NST color 8 boots on crepe! They look great! Was gonna text you to see if they had come in yet.

Not yet, he couldn't ship until Friday but I should still have them before the Postal Service shuts down for Christmas!

Fear not, I will put pictures up before I leave to visit @mdubs and @MrDV

Those new daytrippers are right up my alley. Too bad the all of the additional costs would push the total to $850 CDN!

Just too rich for another beater boot.

Unless it's straight out of the outback, one of the more ludicrous made up material names I've seen yet.
