When it comes to longevity and comfort, the shoe's construction is an important factor. The primary indicator of quality comes from how the upper is attached to the sole and a variety of methods are available.
Leather comes from hides - typically cow. Where and how the cow was raised and the area of the cowhide that the leather is cut from determines your shoe's beauty and softness.
