  2. Leather Mankind has been using leather for a variety of applications but one of the most common ones is shoemaking. Man started making leather shoes over five thousand years ago out of deer and bear skin to combat the snow in the Italian alps, but we’ve come a long ways since then. Even though the medium and purpose hasn’t changed, the way we treat and style hides to cover our feet has. Leather is just a catchall term – there’s an array of skins, tanning methods, and treatments that distinguish all sorts of types of leather for every occasion.

  3. Grades of Leather

  4. Shoe Leathers Roughout - Roughout leather has the rough flesh side of the skin on the outside of the shoe. Veg-Tanned - Vegetable matter and tree barks used in the tanning process, which combine to create a stiff and naturally colored leather. Pull-Up - Pull-up covers a broad swath of heavily waxed and oiled leathers like aniline and chrome whose color lightens when you pinch and “pull-up” on the leather. Chamois - Chamois or “shammy” leather is known for its soft hand, slight nap, and water absorbency. Suede - Suede uses the flesh side of the skin like roughout but the skin has been buffed and sanded down to an even texture which makes suede thin and pliable enough for more delicate garments like gloves. Scotch Grain - Scotch Grain leather was developed in Scotland its more weather resistant than other leathers and has made it a common choice for casual English shoes.

  5. Shell Cordovan -Often considered the holy grail of leathers, Shell Cordovan is one of the rarest and hardest wearing shoe materials on the planet. Calfskin - Calfskin is the leather of young cows, making it thin and pliable with a fine grain that’s largely free of blemishes but still very durable. Patent leather - Patent is by far the most formal shoe material, as such it typically comes in black to match your tuxedo. Genuine Leather - it is the leftovers after using the top layers for better types of leather.

  6. Type of Leather Colour Brown - Resembles a chocolate brownie, and has no orange, red or purple undertone. Chestnut - A brown color that borders between light and medium color depth and has strong orangey-red undertones. Very similar to the color of a chestnut horse in the sun. Chocolate - Neither very dark nor very light, this is a rich brown color similar to that of a premium chocolate bar. It is very similar in appearance to Medium Brown. Cognac - Aptly named for its resemblance to cognac liquor, this is a medium brown color with subtle auburn undertones. Dark Brown - Resembles the color of a moist, dark chocolate brownie, and has a subtle purple undertone. Not as dark as Ebony, but very dark. Ebony - An extremely dark brown.

  7. Havana- A deep brown that does not have any red, orange or purple undertones. Resembles the color of a dark chocolate bar. Hazelnut - A light brown color with orange undertones as can be seen on the shell of a hazelnut. Medium Brown - Neither very deep nor very light, this is a rich brown color similar to that of a premium milk chocolate bar. This color is very similar to Chocolate. Newmarket - The lightest of brown leather colors, this is a light brown with yellow, orange or red undertones. Oakbark - A soft, medium brown color with dark yellow or red undertones; it closely resembles the bark of an oak tree. Tobacco - A light brown with an orange hue. It takes its name from the color of dried tobacco leaves. Walnut -A dark brown with no undertones of orange, red or purple. (Darker than a walnut shell)

  8. Parts Of Shoes Outsole The durable part of the shoe that makes contact with the ground, providing traction Upper The part of the shoe that encases the foot. Heel Tab The part of the shoe that surrounds the Achilles tendon and helps lock the shoe around the heel. Heel Counter An internal support feature in the rear of the shoe that conforms to the shape of your heel Midsole: The material that sits below the upper and above the outsole, providing protection from impact forces and oftentimes ancasing non foam technologies, such as GEL or Air, to increase durability and protection.
