Hello friends. It came to my mind that I need some Bison Leather shoes (eyeing on the 633, 575 or 508 in black Bison), but my feet are a little bit on the sensitive side...
Since I've seen a few Bison shoes here and I'd love to hear about your thoughts, especially regarding stiffness, thickness and overall feel agains Calf leather. Do they rather expand, keep their size or (hopefully not) shrink a little?
Thanks for sharing and helping me decide ;)
Would be not my first but second StC btw...

The American bison they use is not stiff at all really. Very pliable, but it is on the thicker side from a mm standpoint. Seems to hold shape just fine.

I have Bison shoes from Ludwig Reiter. They are very comfortable and have held their shape
for over 15 years.
