Veg-tan Leather Wrap

We've sourced a new leather for the wrap/foxing that goes around the base of the shoe.

Before, we were doubling up the chrome-dyed leather. Now, we're using a veg-tan leather.

Vegetable tanned leather just means that the leather was tanned using tannins extracted from vegetable matter, like tree bark. Because of this process, it's a bit more rigid and a bit more durable.

This type of leather has been more successful during wear tests because of the creasing that goes along the edges of the wrap during use.

It also looks awesome and develops a cool patina over time.
