Shrunken calf is a unique leather that’s exclusive to Saint Crispin’s. The distinct texture is created by steaming the hides, which causes them to shrink as they dry. It’s one of the many advantages that Saint Crispin’s offers in their shoes.
We recently received a shipment of Saint Crispin’s, and inside were two shoes in shrunken calf — the 524 Chukka and a restock of the 532 Oxford. Both come in an elegant dark brown that looks great with anything from dark suits to raw denim.
