Our Type 01 really enjoys both of these oily leathers from the Chicago based tannery. Expect a boot with loads of character and little upkeep.
Horween Chromexcel (CMXL) is the original pull-up which is now almost a centenarian. It is produced to an original bark retannage recipe before being hot stuffed with a blend of natural oils and waxes – so yielding the magnificent true aniline hand rubbed finish. The craftsmanship involved and the intricate recipe details have been passed through the different Horween generations and continue to do so to this day.
The thick waxy Spinnaker leather made at the Horween tannery in Chicago. The vegetable retannage produce a rustic pull-up that gives huge variation in apperance, depending on use and maintance, while the oils and formulated liquors in the retanning process condition and impregnate the leather. Hardwearing yet supple, it is perfect for all weather conditions.
Limited to 6 pairs for now.
