Ambly Chukka Boot Snuff Waxy Kudu
This product is sold out
Waxy Kudu Chukka Boot. Four words that make a great shoe. Kudu leather comes from an African antelope, and is known for its strength and suppleness. Waxy Kudu is tanned by English tannery CF Stead, where the hides are impregnated with wax. Natural marks and defects are typical for this type of leather.
Construction: Goodyear welted in Spain with genuine Dainite rubber sole. The Goodyear welt enables the shoe to be resoled. Leather board heel stiffeners and cork footbed for added comfort.
Leather: Waxy Kudu from English tannery CF Stead. Full wax impregnated Kudu hides, a wild antelope from Africa. Natural marks and scars are present in the leather and add character.
Last: The Elegant Round last is a more refined version of the well-known, traditional round last. With slightly more taper towards the tip and a distinctive toe profile, the Elegant Round last is a very handsome last.
Fit: Fits true to size. We advise you to take the same size as you would in Carmina, Crockett & Jones or Justin Fitzpatrick, and to size down half a size from Edward Green or Gaziano and Girling.
Care: Waxed Kudu leather is impregnated with natural oils and waxes. When the boots arrive, they will look dark and slightly dull. After a few wears, the natural patina will bring out the beauty of this leather. To condition the shoes, you can replenish the leather with Mink or Neatsfoot oil.
