Oiled leather is basically just leather that has been given an intensely nourishing treatment. After the treatment, the leather can contain as much as 15% of its weight in oil. This treatment makes oiled leather one of the strongest types of leather around. That’s why it can be seen used for some heavy-duty situations like motorcycle boots.
This leather stands out for its water resistance, ease of upkeep, soft feel, hand-rubbed evenly stained color, superior comfort, and durability.
Oiled leather is particularly famous particularly because of its patina. The patina is a unique process, as the leather ages, that builds character. The patina is a culmination of the wear, including scuffs and wear, and the care (oils, creams, etc) that you have given it over time.

Known by many names, the McKay aka Blake Stitch method is a stitch down construction where the sole stitching appears on the foot side of the insole and on the outsole bottom. This method wraps the upper leather underneath the foot for more comfort and flexibility. The seam may sometimes be hidden in a groove on the sole’s bottom to minimize
any abrasion from the stitching.
