✔ PREMIUM-QUALITY HORSEHIDE & COWHIDE LEATHER
These ankle boots consist of horsehide leather and cowhide two materials. The upper is made of the first layer of horsehide leather, which is a little thinner than cowhide leather products and can feel stiffer when new. But it will become more supple and conform to your feet shape after a period of wearing.

✔ DELICATE HAND STITCHING
The upper horsehide leather of these boots is firmly stitched with hand stitching. It is strong and firm, not easy to break the thread.
✔ GOODYEAR WELTED
When it comes to Goodyear welt, we stitched a welt to the upper and a strip of preformed canvas that runs all around and bottom cemented to the insole of a shoe as an attach-point for the outsole or midsole. The welt acts as an additional layer to ensure you can abuse your boots without concern for decades to come.
