Britain's C.F. Stead has been producing some of the finest leathers in the world for over a century. Their smooth full grain Classic Calf offers a slightly more formal option while still being distinct from traditional dress leathers and durable enough to wear in any conditions. While we choose to celebrate the natural grain and character of the leather, it is also easily burnishable for those looking for a more formal look. With a classic gloss finish and visibly subtle grain, we believe it to be some of the highest quality calfskin available and excellently suited to footwear.
Use our rough brush and venetian cream to keep the leather soft and shiny. View our step-by-step guide for all leathers here.
