All of our Kudu leather is sourced in South Africa. It has been used locally for generations, renowned for its wearability and beauty. We typically recommend people let the leather age naturally, as it wears well even through sand and rain. As the leather matures it often gradually changes tone, developing a rich patina. When your shoes become wet allow them to dry slowly. Speed drying leather with a blow dryer or drying machine will change its chemical structure and cause it to become stiff. Dirty shoes can be wiped off with a damp cloth. If you’re looking for some extra sheen, leather oils can be applied and soaked overnight as you would a baseball glove.
Springbok is typically worn in South Africa by certain tribes during celebratory times. If your Springbok becomes dirty, gently wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Do not soak your shoes and avoid having them wet for any prolonged period of time. If you find yourself caught in the rain or wading through snow let your shoes air dry after removing them. Prolonged distressing on a specific area of your shoes could cause the hair to wear off in the affected areas.
