Eskimo Kudu Taupe wool-lined ladies leather boot
Wool lined, Kudu Leather, Winter Boot for ladies
Mid-calf length, genuine full-grain kudu leather uppers on a lightweight proprietary Georgia sole (TPR = nonslip, rugged, light-weight rubber composite sole). This super soft leather is fully wool lined to ensure a warm and snug fit. Handcrafted for slipper-like comfort with good lateral support and available from size 3 to size 9. A genuine YKK full zipper on the inside of the leg – for easy fitting. This is the casual boot you’ll become addicted to (ask everyone!). Colour variation, scars, veins, tick marks and neck grooves are inherent to and evidence of the natural leather.
Kudu leather has been used for footwear in Africa for over 2000 years, due to its unbelievably hard-wearing qualities, softness and subtle sheen which helps to illuminate the rich, pebbled texture of the hide. Due to the grazing habits of the kudu, mainly amongst thorn trees and predators such as leopards, lions, African wild dogs, hyenas – Kudu leather is one of the most unique options as it features some scratches and scars – which immediately gives the leather its inimitable character to produce one-of-a-kind boots and shoes. Even though Kudu leather is tough, durable and strong it ages gracefully thanks to its malleable composition. With enough wear, Kudu leather develops a rich, rugged patina while you add your own battle scars next to those naturally formed in the African bush. When treated correctly, Kudu leather is soft to the touch, kind to your feet with slipper-like comfort and is extremely stylish.
