  Q: Can shoes be made from Nubuck?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

Nubuck has proved a popular material used in the construction of footwear. Nubuck is a rawhide leather, and has similar properties to suede. Nubuck is generally expensive, and when produced from a quality tannery, will result in a premium full grain leather. Nubuck is renowned for it's resilience and long lasting wear. Nubuck is expensive due to the excessive dying which is required during it's tanning to result in a soft and blemish free appearance. Nubuck has been popularised by it's use in footwear with a "western cowboy" style, such as the cowboy boot and the moccasin.
