Interesting facts about Bummel Shoes

A stunning leather Bummel Shoe is contemporary, yet classic - a must-have in any wardrobe. Wear it casually with jeans or dressed up for a smarter look. Our shoes are stylish and full of character. An original Bummel shoe means quality, individuality, comfort and durability. Not mass-produced but made with love in South Africa. Each pair is handmade from handpicked African leather, making each shoe a unique one of a kind. Handmade with attention to detail - no shortcuts. Leather all the way. 80% of your foot sweat is absorbed by the insole. If that sole was synthetic, where does the sweat go? Synthetic causes sweaty, wet and smelly shoes. We love the fact that we use the most expensive veg tanned leather insole that is odourless and moulds into the shape of your foot. You can even wear your shoes without socks. No bad smell. Full grain leather uppers are used that are breathable and heat-regulating, repel water and are easy to clean. We can’t make a shoe with a pure leather upper and leather insole and then put plastic inside. That is why we pride ourselves in using leather lining to complete the perfect all-leather shoe. Flexibility. Imagine a shoe to fit your foot like a glove. This is what a full-leather shoe will become. It takes the shape of your foot and becomes your most comfortable wear.
