Description

Our Boot

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.

Sizing and Last

We recommend ordering 1/2 size smaller than your sneaker size. If you wear a 10.5 in sneakers we would suggest a 10 in our boots. Our fit is true to size for American welted footwear.

If you have any questions regarding sizing please contact us prior to purchasing at info@parkhurstbrand.com. We can also assist in identifying the right size for you based off of what you wear in other brands of shoes.

Customization

Want to change something on your pair of boots? We offer heel replacement and resole services along with building arch support, adding extra heel foam etc. Drop us an email at info@parkhurstbrand.com and we would be happy to help!

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 as antelope are not commonly found in the US. We ordered through a US-based company to get this leather in order to support American jobs in the material acquisition process. It’s a bit more expensive for us but we believe it’s the right thing to do. We work with a tannery who works with companies in South Africa to responsibly perform population control with the antelope in an effort to prevent the spread of disease from animal to animal and animal to human. The antelope meat is then distributed to towns and villages in need of food. The hides then become available and we purchase them to make our product in the USA. Through this process we are happy that we can support those in need from afar while making a product in the USA.

    Beautiful boots love how the leather is already scared and rugged. the quality is fantastic and I’ve worn these for everyday since ive received them. the only thing preventing me from giving this 5 stars, is the fact you can’t give 4.5 stars and the leather piece in the foot bed stands out a little and i can feel it running through the middle of my foot throughout the day. Nothing painful just noticeable reminder it’s there and gets me distracted sometimes.

    • Hi Chris!

      Thank you for your feedback! We have actually just finished developing new insoles which are a solid piece of smooth leather vegetable tanned with tree bark oil. There will not be a connecting piece of leather going forward. If you ever need anything feel free to reach out to info@parkhurstbrand.com and we would be happy to help. Thank you!

      Best,

      Andrew
