Our Lodge Leather Soles are made from heavyweight Horween® Chromexcel Leather, providing unparalleled comfort and a surprising degree of durability when worn on non-abrasive surfaces like wood, tile, or carpeted flooring—or soft and dry outdoor surfaces. They are also a nod to American moccasins from the days of the Fur Trade.
Chromexcel is made using proprietary techniques and formulas developed over 100 years ago in a factory still owned and operated by the Horween family in Chicago. It's characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand-rubbed finish, superior comfort, and durability. Chromexcel was made famous by its patina—the unique character of each hide which comes to life with wear.
