For those that don’t know, Steven Taffel is the owner of NYC shoe store Leffot. And these bad boys are his new bespoke numbers by Gaziano & Girling. When I first saw these, I must say that I was blown away not only by the shear beauty of them as a whole but also for the execution in the design and details. There is not one thing about them that is out of place or makes them shy of perfect. I must compliment Steven for choosing this design (particularly the alligator bit on the facing) as well as G&G for the making of such a spectacular piece of footwear. Needless to say, I am in quite admiration (not to mention jealousy 🙂 of this shoe. Well done my friends!!
On another note, G&G (specifically Tony Gaziano) just happens to be doing a trunk show at Leffot today, so if you are in NYC and fancy meeting him or checking out the amazing things that they can do (as shown below), find yourself on Christopher st…..
I can’t say I like that style of slipon, but they do indeed look nice.
Now, about those balmorals with the alligator facing? It would be hard to not wear them everyday!
