This boot is perfect for those gorgeously mixed-up, neither-nor seasons; Autumn & Spring. A little heavier than its fellow "DAS BOOTs" and a gorgeous, autumnal hue, that is somewhere between a good cognac, and a 12-year-old single potstill Irish whiskey, poured nervously from an inherited hip flask, as you sit above the Cliffs of Moher, about to propose to your lover.

It's a full-grain*, generously waxed “pull up" leather, so called because, when pulled or heated, the oils and waxes cause the colour to migrate and become lighter in certain areas. This video illustrates nicely.

Using a pull-up leather means that little marks and scratches will appear on the shoe as you wear it, creating a beautiful and unique patina. But what’s doubly gorgeous is that simply massaging the leather will cause the marks to fade away and the original appearance of the leather to be restored.

DAS COGNAC BOOT has the same lusciously soft calfskin lining as our other shoes, so is super comfy, and has the same, natural rubber, ICH BIN ATHEIST sole on the bottom, which will last for years and won’t need replacing.

 

*Full grain leather is the highest quality there is, made from the topmost layer of the hide, and including all of the natural grain. Its fibres are strong and durable, but nonetheless breathable. And the surface is varied and unique, with a variety of the natural imperfections and marks that tell the story of the cow’s life. As it ages, it burnishes and beautifies, developing a gorgeous patina and unique appearance that in turn tells the story of how the shoes have lived. This leather only becomes more beautiful and more comfortable with wear.

    green measuring tape - Atheist Shoes

    Begin by finding out the length of your foot in cm (see the graphic below on how to do that), then calculate your European size, according to this formula:

    SIZE = 1.5 X (FOOT LENGTH IN CM + 1.5)

    That means, if your foot length is 28.5cm, you should add 1.5, to give you 30. Then multiply 30 by 1.5, to give you a European Shoe Size of 45 (assuming you don't have a very wide foot, in which case you might want to consider going up one size to 46).

    For a more detailed breakdown, see our size guide page. Or email us (hello@atheistberlin.com) with any sizing questions you might have.
