Qualities of Leather
Leather is a natural product from animal hides and therefore differs slightly from hide to hide. Variations in the texture of the leather should not be considered a fault but rather an inherent part of the natural look and uniqueness of the hide. As every piece of leather is different, there may also be slight differences in how it accepts a color dye. This may result in variations in the consistency and depth of the color but is not a defect.
Genuine leather will have natural markings such as small dents, light scars, minor scratches, or subtle wrinkles. These are natural markings and should not be considered a defect but rather indications of the authenticity of the leather.
Leather footwear generally takes about 1-2 weeks of wear before softening. For optimal comfort, we recommend wearing your boots or shoes for 1-2 hours a day to start and then increasing the duration over the next 2 weeks. Please keep in mind that leather is a natural product and will wear over time. To prevent premature wear, you should protect your leather from prolonged exposure to moisture and direct sunlight. Leather is a durable material and well-maintained, high-quality leather is known to last for many years. Many times, slightly damaged leather can be restored through the application of specific products.
