Loake Mason in corrected leather – hence the shine!

Sometimes called Top-Grain leather, this is actually a thinner layer of leather “split” from below the normal skin surface. It is then sanded and a finish coat is added to the surface to give it the smart shiny look shown on the Loake Mason Chelsea boot here. Corrected leather is, however, less natural-looking than calf and will not develop a natural patina as it ages. It tends to be less expensive and more stain-resistant than calf leather, as long as the finish coat remains unbroken
