    Material

    Upper: Sheep Leather
    Lining: Sheep Leather
    Sole: TPR Rubber
    Laces: Cotton

    Leather is a natural, renewable 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.

    This product is made from leather sourced from a Leather Working Group (LWG) audited and rated tannery. 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. Chromium VI is not used in any tanning processes for our leathers.

    TPR is a thermoplastic rubber that results in a durable sole with moderate grip.

    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.
