This product has two main focuses: Reduce the use of plastics in performance footwear and provide a comfortable foot climate! The use of 100% Hemp and Wool padding in the collar and tongue creates great thermo regulating properties; cools the feet when it's warm and warms them when it's cold.
The Oily nubuck leather makes the boot water repellent where it needs it the most and the Hemp is treated with a PFC-free DWR. The water repellency can also be increased by applying a natural beeswax.
