Our Leather

The leather used for Dubarry of Ireland footwear, is specially treated and absorbs less moisture, requiring 70% less time to dry, compared to other leather types. It also ensures that your Dubarry footwear will always be soft and supple. The leather is the full cowhide with all its naturally occurring imperfections, providing the boots with that rugged, 'lived-in' look.

Dubarry footwear is made to last, using the finest quality leather that ensures high performance and protection.  But all leather needs care, and with a little time and the right treatments, your footwear will stay supple and waterproof, whatever you do in yours.
