Our Natos are made from full grain leather, tanned with vegetable oils and waxes. Full grain refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to corrected grain) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide. The "grain" also remains allowing the fiber strength and durability.

Handcrafted in Antigua Guatemala by skilled master cobblers who love their craft. Our cobblers still use their hands to cut, pull, hammer, and glue the different steps; this process leaves a human signature on each pair, making them a true heirloom.

Full grain leather. Rubber soles. High performance insoles. Unisex. Classic. Connected. Natural. Fair trade. Eco-cool.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.
