All manufactures are made with high quality leathers and respectful dyes for skin and body.
The uppers are made with soft and supple vegetable tanned leathers (chrome free), all of them natural colour to be hand-dyed, except the "Lite Line" that is made with factory dyed leather. They all are chemicals and heavy metals (like chrome) free.
Cowhide leather sole is around 3.5mm thickness, it has good adaptability, flexibility and allows Earth connection: Earthing / Grounding. Low grip and low abrasion resistance
We should be aware that leather is a natural material that needs some care and maintenance. Also, it is not recommended to be used on wet surfaces , so it can slip and damage leather after prolonged use on those surfaces.
The rubber soles, made in Spain, are made from the highest quality UPCYCLED tire treads. They are LONG LASTING soles, with high abrasion resistance and grip.
They are the perfect combination of FLEXIBILITY, LIGHTNESS and DURABILITY. Perfect soles for long lasting barefoot shoes!
(Rubber soles can be used over wet surfaces without slipping and harming the material. They don't need any care or maintenance. Rubber sole is not conductive, so it doesn’t allow Earth connection.)

*Leather is only dyed on the outer side (grain), so dyes are not in contact with skin. The inner side (flesh, in contact with skin) is natural, without dyes, therefore, it can’t fade or leak dye or causes allergic reactions or makes the skin to absorbs harmful chemicals.*Except the Lite line which is made with factory dyed leathers.
