These Distressed Loafers by Cobblestone carry a unique design that is stylishly informal yet sophisticated. Perfect for casual brunches, lounge parties and cafes, these unique distressed shrunken leather shoes make an unmistakable impression of style and uniqueness. Made from the highest quality full-grain leather, these Cobblestones are very tough and resilient.
If your creativity has helped you scale the heights of success, these are the shoes for you.
Full grain leather is the best, toughest kind of leather money can buy. It contains all the layers of the animal's hide, and as such lasts the longest.
The second best quality leathers are called top-grain. The only difference between top-grain and full-grain is that top-grain has a processed top-layer, making it smooth. The downside is that it's not as tough or durable as full-grain.
Genuine leathers are the weakest. When the toughest top layer of leather is stripped off, what you're left with is "genuine" leather. Genuine leather is significantly weaker, less durable, cheap and abundant. And not quite as valuable.
Cobblestones are handmade shoes. They do not come off a production line. They're not made using machines.
Cobblestones are made by skilled workers who devote their life to learning the delicate art of shoe-making. And it shows.
