nice compare between the standard INDY and the custom ordered LEFFOT INDY BOOT. pics | LTG
2 weeks ago i got my new INDY out of the customs. pre ordered last october at NYC based LEFFOT. this boot is one of the nicest i ever got. so smooth, so smart, so comfortable, so awesome with a fantastic alone standing look. love it! pics | LTG
he guys, slowly getting to normality. still massive work in progress but LIFE TIME GEAR needs some new blog posts. so i do: not a boot today but an awesome ALDEN WORKMAN OXFORD. looks like a low cut ALDEN INDY which i found at spring 2011 closed WINN PERRY STORE. as you know i am a great INDY fan and i love oxford shoes with a workman attitude. owning and loving some pairs of different RED WING oxfords styles i must admit that these ALDENs are outstanding. made of brown HORWEEN CHROMEXCEL leather, including 6 matching metal eyelets and a flat 360welt with natural finish and the typical white stitching. the shoe features not the INDY typical neoprene cork sole but a waterlock oiled leather sole. great! pics | WINN PERRY
great ALDEN INDY BOOT modification by one of my most beloved shops THE BUREAU BELFAST. classic INDY in KUDU antelope leather with an oil finish on a fat #2021 VIBRAM sole, as you know my favorite sole. more INDY features: 5 brass eyelets and 4 speedhooks, flat waxed laces, contrast stitching on the toe, reverse split welt. awesome. most sizes available. pics | The Bureau Belfast
FREDRIK from SIVLETTO & UNIONVILLE, sweden, send me some information about a new swedish denim brand – and NEZUMI sounds interesting. this 2011 established premium jeans brand is from stockholm, sweden, founded by DAVID CAMPO CARDENES.
“the brand name NEZUMI means “rat” in japanese. the inspiration for the brand name comes from a book that DAVID read as a child about a legendary thief called NEZUMI KOZO who lived in japan during the EDO period. it is said that he stole from the wealthy samurai and gave to the poor turning the petty crook into a folk hero.”
DAVID’s passion for denim starts long ago and in 2002 he decided to search a factory in sweden which could make jeans – for years he couldn’t find one. but in 2011 he found a swedish family owned factory. with these people and their know-how he started NEZUMI by releasing the N 0-2-50 – seen on the pics below – limited to 50 pairs. here some facts: regular rise, slightly tapered legs, button fly, premium 13.5 oz rigid selvage denim from CONE DENIM, WHITE OAK, usa, … the hand debossed natural tanned patch is made of genuine full grain vegetable leather from TÄRNSJÖ TANNERY in sweden. interesting? indeed! and beside: the rugged INDY BOOT worn in the photo shooting is mega awesome. pics | NEZUMI

damn, what a boot, what a beauty. for LTG one of the nicest boots ever seen: a blue suede indy. who else than NYC based LEFFOT could offer this tasteful ALDEN boot. a perfect collaboration! the pics speak for theirselves. a smart suede shoe touched by a gently breeze of classic heritage work boot style. just small sizes are left. check LEFFOT’s site. attention: the boot will not be shipped internationally. call your friends in the US … do it … if you live on small feet … pics | great LEFFOT
ps: i’m still waiting for a collab between LEFFOT x RED WING SHOES – this would be gorgeous, for sure! come on guys.
last year i got my AF76 from ALDEN OF CARMEL. a great boot, but with the COMMANDO sole
too smart for me. after one year with just a few times wearing i decided to change this sole to
a VIBRAM 2021. this was a brave decision thinking about the price of this INDY boot but it was
worthwhile. i love this heavy, tough style and it reminds me now to a hybrid of an INDY POSTMAN
BOOT. again great work by CANER from EXKLUSIV SCHUHBAR, darmstadt.
