This shoe, inspired by classic Bavarian style, laces up on the outside of your foot. I NEVER REPEAT EXACT COLOR COMBINATIONS WITH EXACT LEATHER. This pair is 1-of a-kind and you will never see another exactly like it. The colors on this shoe are rich chocolate brown pressed pattern leather body with varying shadesan textures of brown and burgundy sewn for additional support and strength besides their unique design. All shoes have a foam core mid-sole that will mold to your foot in about 8 hours of wear providing natural arch support (think of your footprint in the sand) and a rubber sole that acts as a shock absorber when you walk on concrete or hard surfaces, easing the impact on your joints. The sole is also made to be replaced when ready by me (with new foam core) or another shoe repair person.
