Alden Shoe – CXL LHS (LSW & LSBH)

A little over a year ago we had an Alden shoe design contest. The winner of the shoe category was our friend MW and his brown Horween chromexcel leisure handsewn loafer. This winning shoe proved that sometimes appeasing a simple desire is best. Rather than thinking of an off the wall new design, MW simply wanted the iconic LHS in CXL, one of the best casual leathers available. An antiqued edgetrim and single oiled waterlock leather sole rounded out the details.

For those of you who have preordered a pair, we will be in contact with you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Early Morning Staff Meeting

A “shoe circle” from today’s monthly staff meeting. Definitely not a GQ-approved wardrobe but we’re all family and it’s early in the morning so it doesn’t matter.

Breakfast from Zippy’s is always served. Today we had chili and cheese omelettes.

Pictured are: Nike Air Force I, Alden Hawaiian Stomper, Alden #1339, GC Adam, Tricker’s Stow, Nike Air Max 95, and Alden #986.

Tricker’s – Stephy (LSW)

After 7 years of providing what we consider the best in men’s footwear, we present to you our very first women’s shoe release, the Stephy by Tricker’s.

Women buying men’s shoes from us is not a rare occurrence. In fact, our Alden and Tricker’s boots in particular have been quite popular with women. Luckily we normally stock our men’s shoes from size 5.5D or 6D which works for most ladies.

Our Stephy is made with 1oo1 burnished leather on Tricker’s lady’s last. A pink pull tab is a kawaii detail we added as a special touch.

*At press time we are happy to announce that these boots have been quite popular so far in-store. We will be continuing to order Tricker’s women’s boots going forward.

Edward Green – Sandringham in Cognac CRUP (LSW)

8 months ago we introduced our friend P.C.’s Edward Green Sandringham MTO in cognac CRUP (shell cordovan) to the world and since then have had numerous MTO requests for that same exact shoe. So, in reaction to the popularity of P.C.’s Sandringham, we’ve decided to stock a few pairs at LSW.

(202 last, cognac shell cordovan, $1600.00)

The big news of the day is Hawaiian Airline’s announcement that they will be adding a HNL-JFK non stop flight starting June 2012. This is great news for me and my family. It gives me a better option for visiting friends and business partners in NYC as well as a much easier option for visiting the Alden factory in Massachusetts. It also makes it easier for my family in NY to visit Hawaii.

Intro rates in June are about $200 economy and $800 first class one-way. LSW has never been closer or cheaper to get to from the East Coast! We await your visit!

Tricker’s – Navy Keswicks (LSW & LSBH)

We’ve been sold out of Tricker’s for some time now so we were extremely glad to receive our latest shipment.

First up is the Keswick in navy and navy suede. Both look great with denim or chinos. The calf version features a black dainite sole while the rapello suede version features a extremely durable double leather sole.
