The Delaware - Dark Chocolate Kudu
Boot and Leather
Genuine kudu leather from the C.F. Stead tannery paired with one of our classic patterns we first launched with - a brogue cap toe known as the Delaware. This boot features genuine kudu leather from Southern and Eastern Africa. Kudu is a game leather and is known to have natural scars and variations.
The color of this leather is the darkest of browns we have worked with, so much so it almost looks black initially. After a few months of wear, you will start to see the dark chocolate brown undertones come through to the surface.

Our General rule of thumb is to go down a half size from your typical sneaker or casual shoe size. If you are a 10D on the Brannock device, we suggest ordering a 9.5 in our boots. If you are a 10E on the Brannock device or are looking for just a bit of extra room without sacrificing overall fit, we suggest ordering a size 10. It is best to try on and wear our boots for the first few wears with dress or thin socks in order to get the best fit, feel and break-in for the boot.
Our last tends to run close to a single E width, which can translate to running one-half to in some cases depending on preference, 1 full size larger than your average sneaker size. This also equates to about one-half size larger than your typical Brannock measurement for D widths.
Sizing can be particular for each individual and we are more than happy to help you determine the correct size 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 footwear.
