If you intend to acquire leather footwear, it is recommended to examine well before purchase it and to try to find out whether it is valid it leather. Genuine leather always warm to the touch. It is easy to make sure of it - enough to touch a leather surface with a hand. Any centimeter of genuine leather is not similar to next. At a touch to an imitation leather fingers or palms of hands mist over. Its surface is externally faultless. The imitation leather badly gives in to molding. The footwear from such skin is not worn in and does not take the leg form. Genuine leather passes moisture and air - it breathes what you will not tell about artificial.

Correctly it is possible to establish the manufacturer in the presence of the certificate on footwear or on others tovarno - to accompanying documents.
