Roughout vs. Smooth Leather

Exploring the Wild Side of Cowboy Boots

When it comes to cowboy boots, the choice between "roughout" leather and smooth leather can be like choosing between wild and tame. Each option brings its own unique style and characteristics to the table, catering to different tastes and preferences among boot enthusiasts.

Roughout leather, boasts a distinct texture that sets it apart from its smoother counterpart. This type of leather is created by flipping the grain side inward, leaving the rougher side exposed on the exterior of the boot. The result? A rugged, earthy appearance that exudes a sense of adventure and authenticity.

Our men's Culver and women's Rose Hill boots are prime examples, crafted with premium roughout leather that adds a touch of rugged charm to any outfit. With the upcoming release of our Roughout Spearville, the roughout trend is only gaining momentum among boot aficionados who crave a more adventurous look.

But what about smooth leather? While it may lack the textured allure of roughout, smooth leather boasts its own set of advantages. Its sleek surface offers a polished look that's perfect for more formal occasions or everyday wear. Plus, smooth leather tends to be more forgiving when it comes to scuffs and scratches, making it easier to maintain over time.

Whether you're drawn to the untamed appeal of roughout or the classic elegance of smooth leather, caring for your cowboy boots is essential to ensure they stand the test of time. When it comes to cleaning roughout leather, a gentle touch is key. Start by removing any loose dirt or debris with a soft-bristled brush. Then, dampen a white cotton cloth with water and gently wipe the surface of the leather to remove any remaining dirt or stains. Avoid using harsh cleaners or excessive moisture, as this can damage the delicate texture of the leather.

With proper care and maintenance, your roughout leather cowboy boots will only grow more beautiful with time, developing a unique look that tells the story of your adventures.
