It’s important for Brandecosse that we share with our customers what goes into Calzaturificio Diemme Boots and how you can get the best out of them. You’re about to make a significant investment in what we believe are the finest country boots you can buy, so it’s only right that you know what we use in making them and why we use it.

Leather: We only use the very best Italian Antifibio leather we can find. It’s the most expensive part of the boot, so why compromise? The supplier is a large concern, having different tanneries engaged in specific processes and types of leather. The division we use specialises in heavy duty, outdoor leathers. The Antifibio leather is subject to a halogenation process making the leather waterproof whilst remaining breathable. We take the thickest full-grain leathers we can sensibly use, specified at 2.7mm +/- 0.3mm. Oh, if you want to take some comfort from the quality of leather, you find upholstery leathers from this company inside Italian Supercars!

Outsoles: We have been working on projects with Vibram® for many years and have tremendous respect for the design and manufacturing capability they build into their soles. They are easily the world’s leading outsole maker and fully deserve their outstanding reputation. But, we also keep looking at new options and if we find different suppliers outsole that we like, we may introduce it in new models. But, be assured, we will have good reason to do this and will trust the sole to do the job intended.

Waterproof/Breathable Membranes: We like Sympatex® membranes. Why? The answer is a fairly- simple one. Sympatex® is high quality German producer of waterproof/breathable membranes. They invest in technology, reliability and production capability and not massive marketing campaigns. So, we get the very best technically advanced membranes at competitive prices. In Calzaturificio Diemme Boots, we use the Sympatex® membrane in two ways, either as a waterproof bag in the uninsulated country boots and laced models or combined with Shearling Wool for added warmth and luxury.

Boot Fitting: We understand that buying footwear online or by mail order has its risks as far as fitting is concerned. On this website, we can only provide so much material to assist with this, so why not give Jane or Mark a call to discuss your specific needs? Tel 01644 430151. We speak with our customers every day and over the past ten years we’ve built-up a good understanding of how the fit of Calzaturificio Diemme boots compare with our competitors, so we can advise with some accuracy. But, if the fit isn’t right, you can simply return the boots for another size. We’ll even send you two different sizes to try if you’re unsure, just give us a call to arrange this.
