We are making available any ready made shoes we have of our current collection of leathers. We typically make each shoe to order, but occasionally we premake some pairs, make random sizes of a sold out leather, or have exchanges that come back. The shoes are in original condition.
This shoe will ship to you within 5-7 business days from the US (for European addresses, please email before ordering as these items will ship from the US).
The Danthu is a color block version of our classic Karina boots, higher at the back by the ankle for a gradual slope to the front. It is made of 2 leathers attached with brass rivets and an opening on the outer side with brass peg closures.
Character: This leather is thick and waxy with lots of body from it's veg tannage, giving it great pliability with a nice structure with a matte finish. The tumbling process keeps the leather soft and supple. It is a waxier, thick leather, making it great for all seasons and darker colors are more resistant to water stains with waxing care.
Care: This is best conditioned with a good quality liquid saddlesoap. Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Using wax regularly on the darker colors help keept it more resistant to water penetration. Be sure to test a small area prior to using.
This leather is from a tannery in the Tuscan region of Italy. They make only 100% Vegetable Tanned leathers and bear the Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana mark which are the strictest standards in traditional leather tanning and environmental standards. Their labor standards are also certified.
There are inherent variations in natural leathers, handmade manufacturing, and local sourcing. Color and texture variations can vary within the same hide. Different monitors can also display colors differently. You may indicate any preferences in tone or texture in the Notes to Shoemaker section if you are looking for something specific so we can do our best to accomodate.
