Leather has been around for just about forever and has been covering feet for almost as long. It is the ultimate material for shoes because it is hard wearing, durable and looks good. It also molds itself to the shape of our foot and allows the feet to breathe in summer when it is hot. A quick look on Tumblr tells us leather shoes are key elements for many styles. Cute flat sandals with leather straps fit the boho look while a pair of solid leather Doc Martens says grunge right out. Anything with a vintage feel, like a neat pair of brogues will match that hipster vibe magnificently. We reckon leather shoes are the ultimate fashion statement no matter what our style.
