Is suede better than leather for shoes? 

The choice between suede and leather for shoes is a matter of personal preference and the season or events you plan on wearing them should be considered. Both materials have their own unique qualities that can make them each an excellent choice for different purposes. 

Suede is a soft and supple material that is often used for casual or fashion-forward shoes. It provides a unique texture and look that can make shoes stand out. Suede is also typically more breathable than leather, making it a good choice for warmer weather. However, unless waterproof, suede is more delicate and prone to staining than leather and may not hold up as well in wet or damp conditions. Italeau offers a vast selection of waterproof leather and suede boots. 

Leather is a durable and long-lasting material that is often used for work shoes or other types of footwear that need to be robust. Leather is also easier to clean and maintain than suede, making it a good choice for individuals who are looking for a low-maintenance shoe. However, leather can be less breathable than suede, which can make it less suitable for warmer weather. 

Ultimately, the choice between suede and leather for shoes depends on personal preference. It is a good idea to consider factors such as comfort, durability, style, and intended use when making a decision.

Do suede boots get ruined in the snow or rain? 

Typically, due to its soft and supple texture, suede can get ruined in the rain or snow. Generally speaking, suede can become stained or discolored when exposed to moisture, and it can also become stiff or lose its texture. 

Luckily, Italeau offers a selection of waterproof Italian-made boots in both suede and leather. 


Do handmade leather boots break in? How long does it take to break in? 

Handmade leather boots will typically require some breaking in before they achieve peak comfort. For us leather lovers, we love the smell and feel of new leather, but cannot wait for the break in period to end. Luckily, with real leather it should be rather quick. 

This process can vary in length depending on factors such as the quality of the leather, the construction of the boots, and the individual's foot shape and walking style. Typically, it can take several days to several weeks of regular wear for leather boots to fully break in and become fully comfortable. During this time, the leather will stretch and conform to the shape of the feet, and any stiff or tight areas will begin to soften and relax. 

To help speed up the breaking-in process, it’s a good idea to wear the boots for short periods of time at first and gradually increase the duration of wear over time. This will allow the leather to stretch and adjust slowly, reducing the risk of discomfort or blisters.  Breaking in handmade leather boots can be a time-consuming process, but it’s also an important step in ensuring that the boots will fit comfortably and last for many years to come. With proper care and maintenance, handmade leather boots can provide a comfortable and durable footwear option that can last for many years. 


How to care for & clean your Italian leather boots: 

There are a few simple steps you can take to help extend the life of your Italian leather boots and keep them looking their best for years to come. After each use, clean them off! A simple soft cloth can be used to remove dirt or grime. If you notice deeper stains, clean them appropriately. From time-to-time leather conditioners should be applied. Once clean, store your leather boots with boot trees to preserve the shape and keep the leather healthy. If you don’t have boot trees, you can use crumbled newspaper or paper as a substitute. Furthermore, avoid storing boots in the line of direct sunlight. Quality Italian leather boots are durable but as with any piece of clothing or shoes you love - taking care of it can prolong its life while keeping it looking new longer. 


Are tall leather boots comfortable?

Italy has been tanning leather for a long time, with boots being one of their specialties. They are known for their handmade leather, quality stitching, durability, and style. As such, tall leather boots take comfort to a new leather. Because leather offers a soft and flexible fit with more ability to breathe than other materials, they make the most comfortable option.

When done right, leather boots are more comfortable and stay in shape better than other boot materials like synthetics. Because leather breathes, the feet will get more air reducing the temperature and the smell. Also, they mold to your feet and become a part of your foot; no other shoe will give you the same support.

Another reason to pick leather boots is that they last a long time. You might wear sandals in the summer and sneakers in the fall, but leather boots are a good choice for any season. Italian leather boots are the best choice for you, whether it is raining or not, especially those treated to be waterproof.

How are tall leather boots made?

Many steps go into making a pair of handmade leather boots. All of the parts of custom boot leather are cut by hand with great care. The artisan cuts the leather with a knife, but because leather is a natural material with different features on different parts of the skin, such as marks, it takes a lot of experience to choose the best pieces and do this job well. If the shoes have decorative perforations, the leather is also stamped with holes.

The leather is attached to the heel, which is made of several layers of leather, and attached to the back of the sole and to the welt; soft leather rims are sewn around the edge of the upper that keeps water out. Shoe Assembly is the process of putting together every part of a shoe to the highest standard. For example, linings and trims, broguing and binding, elastics, and lace holes.

The last is used to stretch and adjust the shoe, and the insoles go on with reinforcements. Depending on the style, color, and type of leather, it can take anywhere from half an hour to more than a week for the shoe to take the shape of the last. Next, the shoemaker sews the bottom of the shoe and the insole together. Boots are then dyed to the correct color.

When the boots put together, shoe laces are put through the holes, and each personalized shoe is brushed and polished to make it shine as brightly as possible. Last of all, the shoes are given a thorough quality check. Now the boots are ready for packing so they can go on the shelf for customers like you to buy.

Are tall leather boots still in fashion?


Yes, knee-high boots, also called "tall boots," are currently and always in style. Not only are they beautiful, but so functional at protecting feet from the elements. Even though ankle boots and over-the-knee boots will always be in style, the classic knee-high boot is currently the most popular length.

Why do people wear tall boots?

Women and men love tall boots because they protect their ankles and shins from different problems. If you wear your boots in a forest, you can expect protection from branches, bramble, and other natural items that can hurt your ankles and shins. Additionally, tall boots provide better protection from the elements while still allowing feet to breathe.

People often choose tall boots because they give their ankles more support. Those who tend to roll their ankles will benefit from how leather boots form and mold to your feet with added support built around the ankle bone. No other type of shoe offers the same level of reinforcement to keep feet safe.

Also, people wear boots because they are comfortable and beautiful. Boots make any outfit look visually stunning while adding depth like no other footwear. You can pair them with just about any outfit for added style, ready to have everyone looking in awe. When tall boots are made of Italian leather, you can expect them to last for decades as part of your wardrobe essentials.


When were tall boots popularized?

Tall boots gained traction in the 1960s as skirts got shorter, and women still wanted protection from the elements. Yves Saint Laurent's brought them to their fall collection in 1963. Beforehand tall boots were men's wear despite the benefits for both sexes. Tall boots were mostly worn by men for about 400 years until the early 1900s. The first ones were called cuissardes, and they were just as or even more dramatic than boots today.

Next, as has happened most of the time in the history of fashion, women started wearing men's clothes, and society overreacted. Still, women were not giving up on these supportive, comfortable, and fashionable footwear. In the 1970s, people did not wear boots as much but did not go away completely. The thigh-highs of the 1960s were wild and fun, but the ones of the 1970s were a bit more simple.


Suede and leather were used instead of bright or shiny mod-style fabrics for their bohemian feel. The boots came back in a big way in the 1980s when Madonna started wearing them in her music videos and shows. Women started to like the fact that thigh-highs were seen as sexy. Women still love tall boots today for all the same reasons.


When is the best time to wear tall leather boots?

Knee-high boots are great for the fall and winter. You will find yourself reaching for them over and over again to keep your legs and feet warm while adding style to your outfit. Pair them with jeans, dress pants, leggings, skirts, and even dresses. Of course, you can wear them in the other seasons too, especially when you need protection from the elements or want to make a fashionable statement. Walking around in tall boots in the summer made of heavy leather could leave a trail of sweat on your calves. They work best in the other three months depending on the material, style, and color. During the spring and fall, it may be warm enough that you can wear the boots, depending on your location.
