Vibram® 705 Half Sole with Deadstock Cat's Paw Twin-Grip Heel
Vibram's oil-resistant workhorse half sole is fitted atop 14-iron leather and stabilized with a steel shank for durability and comfort without compromise. Each sole is then hand-fitted to a deadstock Cat's Paw Twin-Grip Rubber Heel which has been stored in a climate-controlled warehouse for roughly 50 years.
The Kudu is a populous antelope from Southern Africa, living wild in the bush. Its hide provides a striking combination of softness and strength. C.F. Stead's Naked Kudu uses a fully-aniline finish that features subtle, natural pull-up and an unrivaled depth of texture and color. The subtle shimmer results from the tannage alone and can readily be polished.
