Please note that all our footwear is made-to-order. Lead times can be found in our footer below for leather goods and footwear.
Custom colours and variations available. The first Balmoral pictured uses calf leather dyed and antiqued. This is different to the ‘tan’ option in colour as it would use bovine (cow) leather. There is an extra charge for kangaroo or calf leather so please contact us if you would like to request this option. Colour swatches available in our shop for both reptile trim and leather uppers.
Upper options: Prices will vary depending on leather chosen and sole. Kangaroo leather has more texture and markings, the skin is strong, but it’s also very fine in thickness. The veg-tan roo also is a dry leather and thus high maintenance in that it needs regular conditioning to avoid it drying out. Yearling has similar body to bovine leather, but has a smoother grain and a more polished finish. It is also more readily dyed. Yearling and bovine are our preferred choices for regular wear. Baby calf leather is like the cashmere of leather and the choice for high gloss potential, formal occasions and infrequent wear. Bovine is a great choice for regular wear.
