Full grain leather, also known as top-grain, is a type of non-sanded leather which displays the natural grain and texture of the original hide from which it was made. It is commonly used in the manufacturing of footwear, bags, jackets and leather furniture. Because the top layer of full grain leather is not corrected or sanded, its fibers tend to retain their natural strength which results in more durability and better breathability.

I do like the extra width at the toes. Wish it was a little more stylish. Velcro is noisy - but I guess that is all they can use. I am in real estate and sometimes have to remove my shoes when showing a home. Most of the time I can slip them off and on without the velcro.

For decades I have been had a foot problem called "supination", which simply means that I walk on the outsides of my feet. Over a period of time, foot and knee problems can develop. By using special inserts along with the Orthofeet boots, my foot problem has greatly improved!! These boots are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. The thick cushioning material of the boot combined with the wide toe box make my feet and knees very happy. I will definitely order another pair when these wear out!!
