The shoe market is bursting at the seams. There are forgeries and forgeries of forgeries. Wonder how you can recognize good shoes. Is a well-known brand synonymous with quality, or is the price the most important benchmark?
How do you recognize good shoes?
To put it humorously:
- Activate the sixth sense and play a detective.
- Familiarize yourself with the ideology of the brand and the opinions of those who have already made a purchase.
- Like Sherlock Holmes, check the shoe for glue residue, protruding threads, or irregular seams.
Before you make the final judgment – check all the clues!
The material is High Quality.
As you know, real leather is more durable and breathable than its eco-friendly equivalent. Models made of calfskin or cowhide are deformed and worn more slowly than models made of plastic. The basic requirement is simple: the more leather elements a shoe has, the better. And we’re not just talking about the upper but also about the insole and the sole. Often – on shoes or the box – there are characteristic markings that indicate which parts of the shoe are made of leather.
The sole looks more comfortable and cheaper initially, so it may seem like the best option. However, it is easy to wear.
Real leather, especially in the upper part of the shoe, should be free of quirks and defects (without deliberate product aging, of course). In addition, it is more receptive to grooming products than its environmentally friendly equivalent.
The durability of the leather
Denver Leather Boot is very durable if you take good care of them. Due to the natural, three-dimensional, endless fiber interweaving, leather has a very high tear resistance, tear propagation resistance, puncture tear resistance, and tensile strength. In addition, leather becomes even more stable when wet. Thus, leather shoes benefit from this property when they are worn when they are sweaty or damp.
- Higher breathability compared to artificial leather shoes
- Higher elasticity of the leather
- Better thermal insulation compared to shoes made of artificial leather
Conclusion: The foot is very well air-conditioned in a leather shoe thanks to the breathability mentioned above, and it also keeps the foot warm. In extremely cold temperatures, you should, of course, not do without an additional lining in the shoe.
