LEATHERLeather is made from the hides of animals. It acts as a natural insulator and is generally waterproof.
AIRWAIR SOLESDr. Klaus Martens was a German army doctor who injured his ankle during a ski trip in the Bavarian Alps in 1945. While recovering, he designed an air-padded sole made of tires and a soft leather upper. When he returned to the city, he went into business with Luxembourger Dr. Herbert Funck, and used discarded rubber from Luftwaffe airfields to make the shoes. It wasn't until their introduction to the English market in the 1960s that they received the workwear connotations they're known for today. British licensee R. Griggs Group Ltd. Manufactured the shoes in the United Kingdom, added the trademark yellow stitching and coined the term "AirWair" for the soles.
