The Saddle Tan leather is one of our favorites. This vegetable-tanned article is tanned in one of Italy's boutique tanneries which specializes in the process. The leather is placed in a 'Bottali' which is a large barrel that rotates allowing the organic tanning substances to stay in contact with the article. A complete cycle may take 30 - 35 days.
This leather is tough, has the scent of an old saddle room and the squeak of your favorite tooling leather.
*This leather can have prominent vamp breaks and a variation of colors. Since this is a very light-colored vegetable tanned article, there may be areas on the shoe which have darker hues.*

Our lasts run a little large so we suggest going down half a size from your average US sneaker/dress shoe size. For example, if your average US sneaker/dress shoe size is a 10D, we suggest a size 9.5D. The D refers to regular width. We do sell E widths (wide) and EEE widths (extra wide).
