The boots start their journey in natural un-dyed vegetable tanned leather, but when they make their way to me after being custom built for you, I put the Pigeon Tree signature touch on them and dye them Indigo. The indigo and leather dyeing process is something that I have been working on for nearly two years now, and I know what it takes to dye a product like this successfully. It's a very involved procedure.

Indigo Leather Care-
If you take good care of your boots, they will take good care of you! These boots are crafted using the Stitch-Down welt, which means that you can have them re-soled by a professional, and in theory, they can last a lifetime. The leather is going to need to be hydrated and protected- the dyeing process leaves the leather very dry because when leather comes into contact with water, it causes the oil to leave the leather. I remedy this by treating the leather with a blend of waxes and oils. My recommended product of choice for the longevity of your indigo leather products is Smith's Leather Balm. Once you've applied an even layer to the entire boot, if there is excess, wipe off with a soft cloth. The boots will darken immediately with application, but will lighten back up after the treatment has settled. Re-apply as needed, but I recommend several applications in your first month of use. Smith's is one of the only items that I carry in my store that I don't make myself, and I wouldn't do that if I didn't wholeheartedly love the product.
Return Policies and Disclaimers-
• If the boots don't fit and are in completely flawless, unused condition, returns will be accepted at the buyers shipping expense.
