When it comes to material selection, we’re focused on beauty, quality, and comfort. All of our soles and socks are leather, which ensures softness and durability. Our heels are usually leather or leewood, or rubber for certain casual styles. For uppers, we are constantly thinking about innovation, looking for new treatments, materials, and design elements—whether it’s pearlized patent leather, hand-antiqued calfskin, water-resistant nubuck, textured saffiano, bright rubber soles, perforation, or studs. Our belts are made with only the very best materials; genuine alligator skin, pebbled leather, and calfskin leathers. All of our belts are lined in supple nubuck for comfort and durability. Buckles are solid brass in a variety of finishes.
