We are super excited to offer a new leather option: Lake trout leather! We've been able to get the fish skins from Bodin Fisheries in Bayfield, Wisconsin. What was once composted as a waste product, is now up-cycled into a beautiful leather! In these shoes, it is the blue inlay of Lake Superior. It's tough stuff, and doesn't smell the least bit fishy. Now you can eat your fish, and wear it too!
These shoes are crafted with quality gray leather, as well as teal stitching threads. The hand-cut, inlaid images of Lake Superior and the hearts are crafted with quality blue lake trout leather and red kidskin. The soles are a natural tan suede leather, which are soft, flexible, breathable, and add a little extra grip for those beginner walkers. The shoe backings around the ankles have enclosed elastic, allowing the shoes to slide on easier and will comfortably stay on those wee feet. Footwear can be wiped or cleaned with a moist or wet cloth. Immersing in water is not recommended.
