Yeminici Desert Shoes


A traditional desert shoe made with a genuine Buffalo hide sole and sheepskin top. Each shoe is first moistened to soften the leather, making it pliable, and then sewn together with cotton thread that has been soaked in beeswax. This creates a unique and well formed shoe that will last several years if properly cared for.

Key attributes

  • Form fitting - Within a few days of wear, the shoe begins to form to your feet
  • No Stink! - Buffalo hide is a natural anti-microbial. The natural hide protects against the bacteria that cause odor. Guaranteed for the life of the shoe. We never wear socks with our shoes and even after years of abuse they still smell like leather.
  • Traditional craftsmanship - Our antiquated tanneries in Turkey (over a hundred years old) are used to produce our various colors, but no two shoes are exactly the same, so expect subtle variances in color.
  • A note on sizing - We advise you to order true to size, if you are in between sizes, order up to a full size (ie: 9.5 would order a 10).  If it arrives and fits uncomfortably snug, you can return and exchange it for free (we pay shipping costs both ways on sizing exchanges!).
