Mahalo for 2011

It seems as though every year goes by faster and faster. 2011 was an extremely monumental year for us. Our first full year in Beverly Hills, the opening of the LS Lounge at LSW, and the addition of new staff members highlighted 2011. As we look back upon this year we’d like to offer our sincere thanks to you, our friends and supporters of Leather Soul who’ve made everything possible.

Kampai, ganbei, konbe, slainte, salute, salud, mabuhay, and in every other language, cheers!

皆様、明けましておめでとうございます。

Hau’oli makahiki hou!

Alden Shoes – Hampton Medallion Blucher (LSW)

Our latest Alden release is the Hampton Medallion Blucher, one of our three finalists in the shoe category in last year’s Alden design contest. RJF’s design was essentially a blucher version of our popular “SF Shoe,” a medallion balmoral.

Color #8 shell cordovan was chosen for its versatility, the Hampton was chosen for it’s classic dressy shape, and a single oiled waterlock sole was chosen for its comfort and utility. This will make the perfect “workhorse” shoe for the classy businessman.

SOLD OUT!

LSxSE Preview

Can’t wait to release this boot. I can guarantee it’s not for everyone, but it’s not intended for everyone. It’s a imitation cap toe on the Trubalance last with a tan wedge sole. We’ve chosen two colors, natural Chromexcel and black regina calf. It’s going to look so great with a pair of Iron Heart jeans…
