Leather Sole with Vibram Toplift
Oak Street Bootmakers leather soles are designed and manufactured alongside their footwear to our exacting specifications for comfort and durability. Each sole is created from the bottom-up, using no pre-assembled components. Paired to a stacked leather heel with Vibram® toplift, each sole is treated with oil for flexibility and water-resistance.
Horween® Chromexcel® Leather
Chromexcel is made using time-honored, proprietary techniques and formulas developed over 100 years ago in a factory still owned and operated by the Horween family in Chicago. It's characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand-rubbed finish, superior comfort, and durability. More than any of that, Chromexcel was made famous by its patina—the unique character of each hide which comes to life with wear.
