A combination of very fine grain smooth leather and the velvety quality of nubuck. Apply a compatible nubuck and smooth leather water/stain protector before wearing and after each clean. For regularly cleaning nubuck, use a suede/nubuck brush moving in the same direction to remove dust and dirt and a gum eraser for any scuffs. Avoid wax polish as this will spoil the special finish. Use a soft dry cloth on smooth leather. If dampened allow to air-dry naturally away from direct heat.
