      MATERIAL

      Upper: Cow Leather
      Sock/Lining: Sheep Leather
      Heel: ABS with Leather Veneer
      Sole: TPR Rubber

      Leather is a natural material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. We select our leathers based on their individual properties and the intended application.

      Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Leather will develop patina over time and gets better with age.

      Both the upper and leather lining on this style were sourced from Leather Working Group (LWG) audited and rated tanneries. LWG aims to improve the environmental impact of the leather industry by assessing and certifying leather manufacturers. The audit protocol covers energy use, waste, water use and chemicals, as well as traceability.

      CARE INSTRUCTIONS

      These leather shoes should be cleaned and conditioned with a neutral cream polish. Apply with a soft cloth and rub into dry or scuffed areas. Leather is a natural material and will age with wear. It is imperative that you avoid wetting or soaking these shoes in water as this will greatly affect the quality and appearance. The dye in the leather can sometimes rub off so please be aware of this when wearing light clothing or placing the leather item on light surfaces.
