Aniline is a colorless, oil-based compound used in the preparation process of dyes and used to give the initial finish to a hide. There are two types of aniline dying processes, the full aniline leather process which is applied without any pigments so the hide retains its natural coloration and characteristics such visible grain and wrinkles; and the protected aniline leather dying process, in which the hide is dyed for color and then receive pigments which tint the leather all the way through so the underneath layers will displays a consistent coloration. A topcoat layer is applied later for protection as well as for making the natural imperfections of the hide less noticeable.

I bought these shoes for my husband who desperately needed a new pair of dress shoes. These shoes are the perfect style, the toe is not too square, not too long, not too round. Just right. Not only is it the perfect style that we were looking for, my husband loves how they fit. We love the quality for the price.
Wears this shoe: Church, formal events.

Nice construction, although the feel slimmer than the advertised 1.5" width. They do match great with my J&M shoes
