Truly my go-to daily shoe because of the driving protection and how easy it is to slip on. This hand-sewn timeless classic features a repairable driving sole that will last you a lifetime. The leather has been infused with oils and is loved for its water resistance and how it will patina beautifully with age. The traditional moccasin construction lends itself to being repaired multiple times because the leather is wrapped around the entire shoe last so that you are standing on not just the insole, but also another piece of leather and then the outsole is stitched on.

    Full-Grain Oiled Leather 

    Oiled leather is made using a 100-year-old process that takes 89 separate processes over 28 working days as the leather cooks and soaks in oils.

    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 boots including motorcycle boots.

    Oiled leather can be easily recognized because it is shiny, the color is more evenly distributed and it can be oily to the touch (although not greasy and will not leave any residue on your finger). Note however that thick or shiny leather is not automatically oiled leather.

    It is the easiest type of leather to maintain as it does not require as much upkeep. One care treatment per month should suffice (if worn regularly).

    Oiled leathers will scuff and look distressed, but with age, that is part of how the leather builds it’s character (or Patina).

    To smooth things back up, simply keep a horsehair brush handy with a neutral creme that will help rebuild the leather’s oils.

    Repairable Construction

    McKay Repairable construction method

    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.
