Shoe Materials/buf

buf

Vegetable-tanned buffalo leather with an oiled surface and irregular texture. The colour will darken gradually and with exposure to sunlight. The leather gets softer with wear and may stretch. Sturdier than other leathers as a result of the material’s relative thickness.

 

Colours for buf

Care Instruction buf

Vegetable-tanned leathers are extremely sensitive to humidity. Therefore, wipe dirt off gently using a soft cloth. Moisture - both from inside or outside - can leave marks and result in colour changes. Liquids like oil and even dirt also can leave irreversible stains on the leather.

Do not overdo the use of shoe care products, as this can block the leather pores and result in colour changes. For the occasional care of all plain leathers we recommend, for example, "Collonil Waterstop Colours". Small scratches can be treated with matching shoe polish.

If you notice a thin white layer on the leather, this is no cause for concern. It is only surplus wax that can be easily removed. This process is even easier if you heat up the shoes carefully for a moment using a hair dryer.
