During daylight, the boot appears to be allover black, but in fact, have panels of glassine, a textured embossed material with strikingly reflective properties. It's vampy street goth at its finest, and while they look great at all times of day, they're the most fun after dark. This whiton unisex boot is made with glassine, a synthetic nubuck with a reflective finish on top. It has all the dna of a classic doc. It's goodyear welted, meaning the upper and sole are sewn together in heat-sealed z-welt stitch for enhanced comfort, but uses a compound called ranil. That, along with its design, is why it's so lightweight. Also, this whiton includes a softwair technology sole for extra comfort. Material: Canvas.
