Boot and Leather
Truly, a one of a kind addition to your footwear collection. Something which has been in the works for over a year now, we are excited to finally be the first company to offer a goodyear welted green kudu 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. Grazing near thorn trees while trying to evade predators also contribute to natural, inconsistent markings and scars in their hides. 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 was a one of a kind shade of green and will get darker with wear. Break-in on this boot is easy and it has been designed for maximum breath-ability.
This leather which has a suede backside to it which will provide the most luxurious feel for your foot and ankles.
Sizing and Last
We recommend ordering 1/2 size smaller than your sneaker size. If you wear a 10.5 in sneakers such as Nike, Adidas, Vans, New Balance etc. we would suggest a 10 in our boots. Our fit is true to size for American welted footwear. If you are sizes 13 and up, we recommend a true to size fit.
If you have any questions regarding sizing please contact us prior to purchasing at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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. to help revive the American manufacturing industry. 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 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.
