The smooth texture and unique aging of high-quality cow leather. Elegant and urban appearance. OAO's first MADE IN JAPAN model, which incorporates conflicting elements in a well-balanced manner and is finished by the handiwork of Asakusa's shoe craftsmen. A hybrid upper that has been upgraded based on the pattern of the standard model "AUTH" and a trekking sole made by Vibram®︎ that has excellent cushioning and grip. There are two patterns available: Tochigi leather, which is said to be the finest domestically produced leather, and black cow leather, which is waterproof.
OAO®︎ MADE IN JAPAN PRODUCTS.
Produced in collaboration with a boot manufacturer in Asakusa, Tokyo, OAO®︎'s first product produced in Japan. Each pair is carefully finished by the hands of craftsmen.
WATER PROOF COW LEATHER
BLACK uses thick and soft cow leather. It has waterproofness that can withstand sudden rain, while the smooth touch and moderate gloss give off a quiet presence.
The equipped trekking sole has strong grip and durability, yet is extremely soft on the feet.
ELEGANCE OF NATURAL MATERIAL
NATURAL uses tanned Tochigi leather, which ranks among the highest quality domestically produced materials. The beautiful and smooth touch and look of craftsmanship will naturally age due to the sunlight and usage environment, and the depth will increase with time.
