December 2009

to catch my breath……and plan last minute Spring additions.  Thinking the Hobo Boot in all over pull-up with a crepe sole.  Thinking, thinking……


Got the boots today –

They are awesome ! Happy Holidays !

I love it…..and keep them coming!!!

This was a just delivered RBHB1…..fantastic feedback from our clients, and almost sold out in the market.  To get one of the last pairs for the moment, contact Steven at Leffot or on-line at Franco’s.


Next version of RBCB4……a nice Black ‘mini’ Scotch called ‘Inca’.  Storm welt, Sestriere outsoles….another great addition to the lineup!

Have found a little time to plan Spring deliveries/stock items, and one on the hit list is this MTO from a year or so ago that really deserves some investment……so, coming late Spring will be:

RBBAL3 will be realized in Shell Cordovan (maybe a good play for the new ‘Gunmetal’ color?) and the RBBAL4 will be the same boot in calfskin.  I like the medallion, but I have done this boot w/o in the past…..have to think………..


has arrived……RBBAL2 is our Balmoral Captoe Boot in Calfskin (RBBAL1 is in Shell Cordovan) and will be available this coming week in a nice middle brown.  Built on 3B last and a double leather sole this boot sure gets attention.

Better pics will follow Monday, and will be available on Franco’s website at $725.  As usual, sizes are limited.  Feel free to give me a call at the shop for any further questions (804-264-2994).


Some of the new styles now available in-stock are coming on-line at

slowly but surely……


A belated thanks to Jocelyn Anderson of Footwear News for stopping by Leffot last month and publishing a fast interview in the trade.  Next time a 4 page spread Jocelyn?  Seriously, thanks…..I appreciate the support!

ps – that’s not me in the picture…..apparently someone else showed up for me that morning.  No, it is – got to take better pics…………
