Following the success of A/W 2017’s Kudu full grain leather shoe and boot collection for men, Tricker’s has introduced a Kudu Reverse suede range for S/S 2018.
What is Kudu?
African Antelope Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus Strepsiceros) – or more commonly known as Kudu, is indigenous to a variety of African countries. The hide is a natural by-product of this meat industry.
What is Reverse Suede?
A lot of shoemakers use split suede. This is the skin left after removing the full grain leather.
Reverse suede is also known as full grain suede. This is where the full grain leather and skin of a hide is left intact. The flesh side is the suede.
All our footwear is made from start to finish in our Northampton shoe factory using Goodyear welted construction. Available in two natural colour shades inspired by Savannah landscapes, Kudu Reverse consists of these different styles listed below:
Leo – an old shooting style shoe which appears with a crepe sole that was found in our archive.
Monty – a half lined Chukka boot with crepe sole.
Read our Kudu Leather blog post for further information.
How to care for your Kudu suede footwear:
- – For Mud Stains: use a wire suede brush when the mud is dry.
- – For other stains: Scotch Brite is very good at removing most stains, but excessive cleaning may cause permanent damage.
- – Kudu suede has a very soft nap. Watch our videos to see how to brush and care for suede.
- – Use the correct type of soft shoe brush.
- – Keep your footwear in their shoe bags to prevent damage.
- – Use shoe trees to help maintain shape.
