Goatskin, traditionally spoken of as Morocco leather or Kidskin, is used for making fine gloves –the Kid gloves of the Victorian era, still made today- shoes & boots and a variety of accessories and is prized for it softness and surprising durability. Shoes made of Kidskin are know for their superior accommodation to problem or irregular shaped feet. Of course they are a pleasure for any feet.
