All of the hippopotamus skins are certified to have originated from animals that died of natural cause and not hunted. I have personally hand selected each skin for their colour, texture and grain which gives each completed shoe a unique appearance. The material is very strong and will last many years. I recommend these skins for either two-tie bluchers and boots. The unique grain would work very well in casual settings."
Not sure why they would be dishonest about this.
