THE FINEST KANGAROO LEATHER
Kangaroo leather is pliant, thin and sufficiently strong, which indispensable features in achieving the lightweight, flexible, barefoot feel concept. Kangaroo leather is also flexible and stretches well, conforming to the shape of the player’s foot so they feel like they are custom made. The barefoot feel, which is the true mark of the Morelia, can only be obtained with kangaroo leather.
HAND CHECKED FOR THOROUGH QUALITY CONTROL
Each pair of Morelia boots are adjusted in each step of the process. After passing each check, they are laced in the final step of the process, and then polished by hand. The boots are thoroughly cleaned from three available types of polish, each one perfectly matching the level of necessary cleaning. Finished Morelia boots are thoroughly inspected so that none are ever discarded.
CRAFTSMANSHIP IS EVIDENT IN THE TOOLS
Tools specifically used for making football boots are used for the Morelia. The leather is pulled and stretched with a plier-type tool and uneven sections are pounded to create even leather panels. Because the leather stretches differently depending on the temperature and humidity of the day, craftsmen use their sense of touch to adjust the leather so it is perfect.
