Did you know that leather aging #2 means that #1 existed?
Last April, when I posted a photo log about the aging of leather , I had only been at Kadoya for about two months and a few days after joining the company as a new employee, and I had very little knowledge about leather.
At that time, all I could do was stare at the leather...
To be honest, I think updating the photolog in such a situation had zero persuasive power.
About 10 months have passed since then.
There are still many things I don't know, but I'm in the process of incorporating what I can see, information from customers, and knowledge learned from senior staff at the Osaka store.
In the meantime, I would like to write a little about what I personally experience about the aging of leather!
It's been about 2 months since I started wearing elefantas (purchased at the end of December last year)
At first, they were harder than I expected, and to be honest, I was worried about whether I would be able to continue wearing them.
The ankles and ankles, where the leather comes into direct contact with the skin, were especially hard, so I had to bend and stretch to get them used quickly.

After about 2 months of wearing them every day, I started to feel the softness little by little.
The shoes are now soft and easy to wear, as if the hardness at the time of purchase was a lie.
There are wrinkles near the ankles, probably due to bending and stretching.

Changes over time vary depending on how often you use it and how you use it.
The way clothing wrinkles differs from person to person, and the more you wear it, the better it will look.
The best way to get used to leather is to wear it habitually.

“The same thing changes over time into something unique”
There is no correct answer regarding aging. Everyone, please enjoy the changes over time!
You can also see the jackets actually worn by Osaka store staff and the boots they have worn in the past, so please feel free to ask when you stop by the store.
We are looking forward to your visit♪
