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 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 do 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. Thank you for your understanding and support.
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

At Parkhurst we aim to deliver an amazing quality product. Each pair of boots is handled over 180 times before they get packed and shipped to you. Throughout this construction process, the human eye and hand play crucial roles in cutting, sewing, lasting and finishing.
