Kudu are species of antelope from Eastern and Southern Africa. Their hides often have scars because they are free-roaming animals living in the wild bush and grazing near thorn trees while trying to evade predators. These inconsistent scars and imperfections in the leather will truly provide your boot with a one of a kind look. No two pairs will look exactly the same and your pair will have a rugged, distressed appearance. This particular color of kudu stuck out with us – it has a black patina but once broken in, will turn a very dark brown.
Sizing and Last
We recommend ordering your Brannock device size. For example if you measure a 10 on the Brannock device then we would suggest ordering a size 10. You can also go a half size down from your sneaker or casual shoe size. For example, if you wear a 10.5 in sneakers such as Nike, Adidas, Vans, New Balance etc. we would suggest a size 10 in our boots.
If you have any questions regarding sizing please contact us prior to purchasing at email@example.com. We can also assist in identifying the right size for you based off of what you wear in other brands of shoes.

Transparency and Practice
We believe in making our product in the U.S. The materials used to make this boot came from the below states:
Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
For this boot, kudu is not a leather originating from the US since antelope are not found in the US. We order this leather through a US-based company in order to support American jobs in the material acquisition process. Each year the antelope numbers in South Africa sky rocket. In order to prevent the formation and spread of disease, government-issued population control is conducted to moderate the growing numbers of antelope. The meat is then distributed to towns and villages in need of food. The hides then become available for purchase. We buy them through the tannery we work with to make our product in the USA. Through this process we are thrilled to support those in need from afar while making a product in the USA.
