Traditionally, leather is the preferred material choice for an upper material of a shoe or boots and has been there for thousands of years, with the first known leather shoe from six thousand years back. To date, the majority of high-quality footwear brands continue to follow our ancestors' wise use of leather because it offers many qualities, which are often left missed in other materials.
- The shape of a shoe can often be more easily maintained in a leather shape while still having the ability to take on minor adjustments to fit that particular shape on any foot.
- The leather properties allow it to absorb and transfer sweat and heat away from the foot.
- Leather can often be restored by polishing because it has a good surface wear.
- It is a comfortable material that can be worn in both hot and cold temperatures.
- It bends easily with the foot and is not significantly weakened by folding or folding.
The skin of most animals can be treated in such a way that they produce leather and can be found in the following different skin types:
- French veal calf - these calves are usually up to 10 months old, which gives a first class fine leather which is of a fairly strong nature. Therefore, this leather is often used as an upper material in many high quality men's and women's boots and shoes. This leather is always lined.
- Yearling - this leather comes from the skin of an older animal, up to 2 years of age. The grain is higher than in the calf, but stronger. This leather is found in men's, women's and children's shoes and as a dress, leather is always lined.
- Collapse - made from the skin of a fully grown adult cow. Again, this is leather even at courses than either year calf but is much firmer and stronger. It's usually called & # 39; a side of leather & # 39; because it is cut from the spine to handle comfort. This leather is very suitable for both work boots and strong shoes. Because of its strength, these skins are usually too thick to use tops of shoes and are divided into layers. The outer layer (hair follicle side) is used for tops and if this outer layer has been blasted or scarred in any way the surface can be buffered to remove any imperfections before applying a finish. The leather is then called & # 39; corrected grain & # 39; leather. Boots made with leather / oxskin / arrowskin are manufactured as non-linear boots due to the thickness of the leather.
- Get or Kid - This type of leather is much softer than it is for a calf, but in the same case it is more likely that he is neglected and exposed to wear. Children's leather, obtained from the younger animal, is finer in grain and has a glossy appearance. Both goat and children's leather are used in men's and women's fashion and comfort shoes and are especially popular in good quality moccasins. In any of its forms, be it Kid or Goat, this leather has a very distinct grain found around the follicles. For example, RMWilliam's children's leather uses only for luggage compartments and heel socks and it is recognized by its distinctive butter-yellow color.
- Kangaroo - This is a lightweight, supple leather that is both soft and supple to wear. It is also surprisingly strong for its weight and is often found in both fashion and sports shoes and in dress and casual boots. This leather is always lined.
- Buffalo - this leather has an attractive and distinctive surface pattern; comes from the water buffalo. When used for shoe uppers, the bulk of buffalo leather comes from young animals and is often used in everyday wear and clothing and sometimes for lining.
- Camel - a naturally strong leather that is both tough and sturdy. This leather originates from Australian camels which are either from cultivated or wild, rolled stock found in Central Australia. One of its most distinctive features is found in the scarred scars that arise from desert life. Again, this leather can be used for both dress and work shoes.
- swine ~~ POS = TRUNC - creates an excellent lining material because it is a soft, loose fibrous leather. Usually shown in pairs, the follicle pores are deep and quite distinct. It is sometimes possible that the grain side of the skin is dropped to produce a piglet.
- Sheepskin - another soft and loose fibrous leather. This type of leather is not as strong as others and for that reason it is usually used with wool that is still intact as a lining for slippers or shoes in cold weather.
- chamois leather - Often used in very high quality shoes for both men's and women's boots and shoes. This leather is a durable, soft and very comfortable leather to wear and has a small surface texture.
- Exotic leather - other creatures, such as lizards, snakes, crocodiles and ostriches, have skin that can be tanned for tops with shoes and boots or as decorative panels and clothing for other shoes. Because they have a very distinct appearance and are difficult to work with, these leather are expensive and require a strong support material.
