10 Reasons to Choose Handmade Leather Shoes

by Sean Scott January 06, 2020

There are countless reasons why someone may be interested in investing in a nice pair of leather shoes. For many, the classic, stylish look is what draws them in. For others, the unmistakable quality is what holds the greatest appeal. Many are convinced that leather shoes are the way to go, yet some still hesitate in making a decision. They wonder if the value of the leather shoes can justify their cost; however, upon closer examination, it is easy to see why buying leather is a wise decision.


1. Yes, the quality is worth it

Unlike cheap mass-produced shoes, leather shoes will not give in under exposure to many environmental conditions. When you buy true premium leather, you never have to worry about it cracking, splitting or giving in to wear and tear. Cheaply manufactured shoes will die within a few months or a year, whereas premium leather can last for decades.


2. They can be customized

The best leather shoes are handmade. A well-crafted, customizable shoe can be personally designed to fit your specific shoe needs and will incorporate all of these elements to come up with a perfectly tailored shoe that will provide not only ultimate comfort, but utmost functionality.


3. Best details

Handmade shoes also offer the best detailing of any other type of shoe; they come with double and reinforced stitching to ensure that the areas most susceptible to wear and tear do not give out, no matter what you put them through.


4. They save money

While a pair of quality leather shoes may cost you more up front, they will last far longer than any other pair of manufactured shoes. You can fully expect your shoes to last for decades, if not for a lifetime. With mass-produced shoes, you can expect to replace them every year or so; however, if your leather is well taken care of, you can expect many, many years of wear out of them.


5. They never go out of style

Leather is classic. It has been around for thousands of years and won’t be going out of style anytime soon. Because leather shoes are made from a natural material, they will always be unique; no two pairs will ever be exactly alike.


6. They are comfortable

If you’re looking for comfort, nothing beats handmade shoes. These are designed with your specific needs in mind and are made to fit your foot perfectly. 


7. They are durable

Because they are made from the finest quality, leather shoes will be able to withstand all sorts of weather conditions. Handmade crafters tend to give a lot more attention to the small things that make a pair of shoes last longer; extra stitching, padding and care go a long way in making one of the finest-quality shoes around.


8. They are breathable

Unlike plastic, leather shoes allow your feet to breathe so they won’t get as tired as they would in plastic shoes. While the two may look similar, leather won’t trap your feet in an unpleasant environment that can eventually lead to skin damage if kept there too long.

 

9. They can meet special medical situations

Because they are handmade, leather can be tailored to meet any type of foot shape or condition, whether it be high arches, hammer toes or bunions that require special footwear. Tailor-made shoes can be designed to meet whatever requirements you seek in quality footwear.


10. They turn heads

Leather offers a level of class and sophistication that will leave an impression on every person you meet. Let’s face it: Leather gets noticed and definitely turns heads, giving whomever's sporting it the admiration and respect that they righteously deserve.

 

No matter who you are, investing in good-quality leather shoes is always a good idea, and if you’re able to find someone like COMUNITYmade to handcraft leather shoes tailor-made to meet your every need and expectation – you'll feel pure bliss.
