Stretch nubuck (cowhide leather- softer than suede) Paid $200 Beautiful boots, unfortunately 1 boot is damaged. See photos 6-8. The suede seems to be coming off in 2 spots. Plus the boots weren't stored properly and there are heel marks from the other boot. Still very wearable with a long skirt or pants. Damage is closer to the top of the boot. I am selling these for a friend. Please see other ads, thanks.
