Roughout/Nubuck

Roughout/Nubuck

Roughout and Nubuck leather is created using a reverse-suede technique. Many tanneries split and thin hides to create suede, but our tannery simply uses the other side of the hide. This allows us to create beautiful roughout and nubuck leather with no loss of durability. Actively maintaining leather is the most effective way to ensure integrity and longevity. Learn how to care for your Red Wing Heritage Roughout and Nubuck leather.
