Petru & Claymoor - Hippo Leather

There is something very appealing about Hippo leather. Its aged-looking yet fine detailing nature really makes it unique compared to most other exotics. It looks like an old skin that has lived a thousand years but, for me, that’s what makes it look so cool, at least in this suede-like version. The loafers first caught my eye and I was really blown away by how awesome they looked. And then they, being Romanian shoemakers Petru & Claymoor, made this chukka boot and I saw a cool pattern that I think they will soon be capitalizing on as it is not often seen yet is infinitely intriguing. Sorry for the run-off sentence, but it’s one of those days where time is tight yet want to get out cool content!

So, I saw these, they blew me away and now I am eager to see what is next. Imagine a brogued oxford? Or a balmoral boot. I hope that P&C makes a capsule collection from this leather as I can see it performing really well. And my question is, is it available in other colors? Imagine a dark navy. That would be cool. Or a deep red or even burgundy. You can see my mind running, right?! That’s how cool this leather is. I almost feel excited. Imagine that! Maybe one day, I will enter the world of exotics. First, I have to tackle a few other obstacles. For now, I will let you order a pair directly from Petru & Claymoor. Let’s see what you can come up with? And if you have yet to hear about P&C, make sure to check out their intro post found HERE.

Which one do you like it better in? The loafer or the chukka? Me? I say loafer!

      Pretty sure leather for shoes is never the first reason why it was acquired. The leather industry is quite heavily regulated fyi
