Why are our leathers so special?

Cuirs Pikolinos
Pikolinos Leather

Undoubtedly, one of the signs of quality in a shoe is the leather that it is made out of. The design can be far-out or conservative but without quality materials our feet don’t stand a chance.
A naturally treated leather, with water based, solvent-free dyes that do not block up the material’s pores so your feet can breathe much easier. In the milling process, the leathers are continually moved and subjected to heat which helps to break the fibres making them smooth, soft and manageable. Moreover, the tanning process is semi-vegetable (in some sections its 100% vegetable!), which means that heavy metals like chrome are not used so they are ideal for anyone who is allergic to this type of component.
For better shoe care, all the leathers from our collection are treated with Scotchgard waterproof stain protection. This makes it more difficult for liquids to penetrate our shoes and it protects them against any other type of stain too, making them look good for longer.
Now you know… Pikolinos leathers are unique!
