    I disagree, Leffot is.

    I will visit. Walking distance from where I live.

    Leffot is awesome. I basically get all my shoes from Steven.

    But to be fair, I have never experienced LeatherFoot. :)

    Same. Bought SCs and a couple of Cleverleys from them. Excellent service.

    "Rutt roh raggy"! It's a cat fight. Who can resist talking on the phone to Che at Leffot with her whispery and smoky cool voice. Just call me baby, baby. I know, inappropriate.

    Never talked to anyone on the phone at Leffot but the times I've been in New York and have stopped in, I've found them unfriendly and unhelpful. Maybe I've just had bad luck. Wonderful stock though.

    Mr. Pink, what can I say, it's New Yark. If you go into any store in Manhattan expecting to be waited on "forget about it".

    I lived in Manhattan for many years, so I know better than to expect California faux cheer but courtesy and helpfulness don't seem like too much to ask.

    Che does have a hot voice. Che is a huge suede and shell fan.

    Sorry to hear. Might just be bad luck. I've always found Steven, Che, and everyone else at Leffot incredibly helpful and attentive, but sometimes they do leave you be to look around by yourself (as some New Yorkers prefer to do).

    My initial experience at leffot was certainly underwhelming, however that was pre che, all of my interactions since have been great.
