Robert August would like to announce the addition of Waxed Suede leather to our Made To Order Chicago Collection!
Waxed Suede is a waxed leather that will give your shoes a casual rugged look. It is one of those leathers that will age wonderfully. You’ll have a one-of-a-kind pair of richly dyed shoes that work with waxes during wear and offer wonderful natural waterproof properties.
A rugged shrunken fiber leather is combined with a world-renowned tanning and waxing process. Simply put, this leather is meant to take a beating and will immediately have a distressed, yet refined look to it.
As the leather gets more wear, undertones will start to show through to the surface and wax will begin to wear and even out.
As opposed to traditional waxed flesh or waxed finish leathers, which are typically waxed on the surface only, waxed suede leather has wax both in the tannage and on the surface, creating a waterproof barrier between the elements and your foot.
