These shoes were made for waxing, so that's just what we did. By applying the right waxes to the full grain cowhide these shoes sport a water repellent finish and a unique look. The safety features that have become a signature of our urban shoe collection are all incorporated in the Marshall, such as the reinforce heel and toe and the anatomically shaped ankle cup. The distinctive looks will enhance your look whether it's a casual or a more polished look you're after. With an anatomically shaped foot bed in the mix you’re sure to feel comfortable while both walking and riding, and the clever gusseted tongue keeps out the water coming off your front wheel. A subtle reflection strip at the back makes sure you stand out when the sun goes down. Sizes 39-46PROTECTION

The heel of the boot is reinforced for added safety. The rider won't notice it while wearing as the hard plastic has been heated to mold it into the perfect shape. The reinforced heel cup also contributes to a better posture of the foot.
The toe area of the boot has been reinforced with a thermoformed hard plastic toecap. Thermoformed means the plastic has been heated to model the perfect shape. The rider won't feel it this critical feature when wearing the boot, but will benefits from the added safety.
This grade of leather is desirable because of its excellent breathability and durability. Pull-up is not a type of leather of its own; it is an effect that leather gains with a specific tanning process. The pull-up effect is visible when the leather is folded or pulled - a new shade of color appears. This unique variety of cowhide has been suffused with wax to add water repellency, easy care and a vintage appearance.
