We use premium leathers from world-renowned tanneries including hides from free-range, grass-fed cattle. All of our leathers are tanned in their most natural state from tanneries such as Horween, S.B. Foot and C.F. Stead.
We don't have our hides sanded down and over-dyed to cover up leather imperfections. It is our belief that the best leathers are left in their natural state, then tanned. Leather hides may have some scars and imperfections. While we monitor this on every hide, there will be subtle, yet tasteful natural imperfections which may come up and these are considered part of the boots' overall character because there is a story behind them. Rather than discarding these beautiful pieces of leather, we believe in using them to create great footwear that will last.
Leather should be treated like your skin - use the most natural form of conditioner or balm. We recommend using Smith's Leather Balm for all models we offer excluding suede and nubuk. Some other brands which we recommend using are listed below:
