Leo Kudu Suede Boot
STYLE NO. 6119/3 LAST. 4497S
Our shoes and boots are made on lasts and made to last. Looked after properly, there’s no reason why a pair of Tricker’s shouldn’t last you a lifetime. This is thanks to the incredible care and attention lavished on every Tricker’s shoe or boot by our craftsmen and women in Northampton – the traditional home of English shoemaking. Every single pair of Tricker’s boots or shoes is the result of 260 individual processes. All of them are carried out by master shoemakers who have learned their trade over many years.
Continuing from our last season African Explorer collection, We have added two new colours in Kudu reverse sueude. We have 'Peanut' & 'Ridge' which have both been finished on a light crepe sole.
WHAT IS KUDU?
African Antelope Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus Strepsiceros) – or more commonly known as Kudu, is indigenous to a variety of African countries. The hide is a natural by-product of this meat industry.
WHAT IS REVERSE SUEDE?
A lot of shoemakers use split suede. This is the skin left after removing the full grain leather.
Reverse suede is also known as full grain suede. This is where the full grain leather and skin of a hide is left intact. The flesh side is the suede.
All our footwear is made from start to finish in our Northampton shoe factory using Goodyear welted construction. Available in two natural colour shades inspired by Savannah landscapes, Kudu Reverse consists of these different styles listed below:
