When describing the first incarnation of the Leeds we called on Leonardo da Vinci's famous quotation: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Those words still capture the essence of this shoe, which is at once aesthetically pleasing while also being inherently straightforward. In this updated version we've retained the handsome plain toe and blucher vamp but lifted them to create a more balanced, sharper silhouette that highlights the intricate arch saddle stitch. It just so happens that by doing so weve given you more room up front to add even more comfort to the great fit you've come to expect from the rounded, fuller toe of the 511 last. Still available in favorites black and walnut calfskin, as well as the rich and lustrous Oxblood, the Leeds' traditional look blends perfectly with any outfit, from a suit to khakis and even jeans. Throw in the comfort and durability that comes from the addition of the Double Butyl outsole and Poron insole you've got a fashionable, foot-friendly design that an Old Master would still be proud to wear..
