Looks great! What are the defining characteristics of kangaroo leather? I know it's used on the pads of woodwind instruments. smile.gif

High tensile strength leather, unique grain.  Soft from what I hear.  Upland hunting boots have been made out of this for a while.

I had to source and ship the leather myself. It wasn't a difficult process but I had to co-ordinate everything with them.

Before they went synthetic, high end football boots (soccer shoes) were made out of Kangaroo leather due to the light weight and incredible strength and durability. I dont know enough about leather to understand whether it makes good dress shoe leather, but I can still remember how much I loved getting my first pair of kangaroo boots and scrubbing and polishing them twice a week!

That's right. Had a pair of Diadora boots in "k" leather many moons ago

They're getting harder to find, but 'roo leather footwear is still out there. My current outdoor boots (Diadora) and indoor boots (Pele) are kangaroo.

I have also just pulled my trigger on my 1st Vass.

Thanks gents. They're Budapest Oxfords in Oxblood on the F last with HAF soles. Wore them today and a) they're super comfortable (in contrast to my first pair of U last Vass which took weeks to stop blistering) b) definitely larger than U-last shoes, so I may consider a half size down in future, c) oddly clunky feeling when one is used to MH71/358/U.

We are truly sorry, but it turns out only now, that the
workshop has finished two of your orders in the wrong color. There is a boot in Bordeaux Cordovan as requested and two in Antique Cognac Cordovan
instead the requested whiskey. Can you please have a look on the pictures? Please let us know if you accept this colors. If not then we can make the
two whiskey colored models ready for you![IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]
