Grain (embossed) Leathers

Grain leathers have been embossed with a pattern from the tannery, making them more resistant to scratches and water spots from rain. These pair extremely well with rubber soles as a rainy day shoe.

    Our calf suedes have been chosen for their rich handle and luxurious feel. While they are ideal for more casual warm weather shoes, they can easily hold their own in wet weather. Repello suede from CF Stead in particular have been impregnated with Scotch Guard during tanning so that liquids fall right off without need for sprays.
