UETLIBERG* is the most eco-friendly leather high-top sneaker on the market, available in classic brown and black.
LOVE OF DETAIL – QUALITY FEATURES
- Lightly padded shaft end provides greater comfort.
- Removable, breathable footbed is made from 100% natural materials.
- Finely roughened leather insert on the inner heel for added support.
- The typical “V” design line of the shaft end stands for CerVo Volante as well as for the mountains and valleys where the red deer live.
- Fine stag beetle embossing has been inserted on the tongue.
The textile insole is connected to the shoe upper by a seam using the Strobel construction. The rubber sole is sewn to the shoe upper. The result is an unusually light, flexible and comfortable shoe.
Manufactured in a small Italian shoe manufactory in Tuscany.
The upper leather, which is purely vegetable tanned in Switzerland, comes from the wild Swiss red deer, as with all Cervo Volante shoes. The surface has been left natural without any treatment.
The colours correspond to the natural colouring caused by the tanning with European oak. Available for this model (as long as available):
