Rooted and wild: the desert boot for men in deer suede leather
Wild (Suede in English) is the term used to describe both leather from wild animals and leather with a rough surface (suede). DESERT is therefore doubly wild (play of words):
The oak-tanned leather comes from wild red deer, and the finely roughened suede side has been turned inside out.
This not only results in a cool suede look with a velvety feel, but also less leather waste. The traces of wild deer life are not visible on the suede side. On the smooth leather inside of the shoes, on the other hand, these signs of life do not bother you. Maximum sustainability with style.
The classic desert boot with open three-hole lacing makes do entirely without leather lining or synthetic reinforcements. The DESERT lets the feet breathe naturally, always smells good of vegetable-tanned leather and awakens the pioneering spirit of a desert expedition. Wonderfully airy and yet grounded thanks to the slightly contrasting dark brown Vibram sole. For the lightness of being in summer and the transitional season.

The leather, tanned in Switzerland with pure vegetable acorn fruits, comes from wild Swiss red deer. The desert boot consists of only one leather layer, i.e. it is unlined and therefore light and fully breathable. The so-called suede leather is softly roughened on the outside. It has been left natural without surface treatment. The soft smooth leather inside shows individual traces of the life of wild animals. These traces are natural and do not disturb the wearer.
The colour corresponds to the natural colouring caused by the tanning with oak. For the men’s desert boot available in:
Velours Oak (undyed)
