how it is made.
Handcrafted in Italy with the finest, vegetable-tanned, buffalo leather hand-dyed and hand buffered.
The upper is cut from the dyed hide and Ideal-Flex sewed to a beautiful buffalo leather, elephant printed outsole. The constructions is complex and time-consuming but the result is extraordinary in terms of flexibility and comfort.
To create a distressed, urban look, this style also undergoes an exclusive antiquing process called stone washing, consisting of washing the shoe in open washing machines filled with water and pumice stones.
Once also this stage is completed, additional layers of a darker hue of the same cork-brow dye are applied, always by hand, to create a beautiful, patina-like chiaroscuro. Finally, the shades of uneven intensity are emphasised through careful waxing and brushing.

All our HAMPTON FLEX shoes and boots are stone-washed and treated for a worn-in, distressed look, so don’t need to be kept pristine. They are meant to be lived in and become part of your story. The more worn-in the cooler they become, displaying a lifetime of memories and stories.
That said, regularly caring for your shoes will nourish them, increasing their softness, waterproof and comfort. And, it goes without saying, the more you care for your shoes, the longer they will last.
