The Leather Of The Super Sole Styles

The leather of the #8801 Copper Rough & Tough is a distressed pull up leather with an antiqued or mottled appearance that is designed to appear slightly worn, already broken in. There’re no finishing pigments used on this leather so the natural beauty shows through to add character.

The #8802 Sand Mohave is made with a premium, waterproof, and reverse suede leather. It’s originally designed to withstand the harshest field conditions. It’s outer appearance provides texture, character, and durability. Mohave provides excellent water repellency and superior resistance to stains.
