CLICKER’S NOTES - CALF LEATHER
Calf leather is a very popular choice when ordering our sneakers. Known as a premium grade leather that is firm and even whilst offering a consistent finish across the hide, calf sometimes carries a fine grain or it can be completely smooth depending on the finishing process.
Some key features of calfskin are its soft and supple feel which makes it ideal for footwear as it can move and flex with the wearer, its signature fine grain that gives a high-quality finish, and importantly its durability whilst also remaining lightweight.
Each pair is made to order so please allow around 4-6 weeks for delivery
