Leather Is Timeless: 9 Benefits of Wearing Leather

Leather Is Timeless: 9 Benefits of Wearing Leather

1. Breathability

Leather is one of the only garments that breaths? Air passes easily through leather giving it the versatility to keep you warm or cold and regulate body heat more efficiently than other clothing options.

2. Durability


Genuine leather outlives all synthetic material and cotton based clothing. It withstands the elements better up to 600% on average!

3. Water Resistance

If the leather is treated or waxed then it will be resistant against water and other liquids. When working outside or in kitchens, you need to wear shoes that are water resistant to keep your feet dry and avoid any external damage to the shoe. Leather shoes can keep your toes dry from any spills or puddles. 

4. Extra Protection 

Aside from a steel toe boot, nothing comes close to the protection of leather. Leather can block needles, knives, and other work-related hazards.

Did you know leading brand police gloves are made from kevlar and leather? They are trusted to stop needles when searching suspects.

5. Better Fit & More Comfortable Fit

If you wear leather shoes, the leather material will mold to the shape of your foot. When trying on plastic or other synthetic shoes you can find they often feel hard against your feet and they won't change to accommodate the shape of your feet. You might think that's a good thing, but it's not. As not everyone's feet are exactly the same, leather can adapt to your foot shape, giving your feet extra comfort and support. 

7. Easy to Clean

Compared to other fabrics that can be difficult to clean, leather is easy to wash down with a damp cloth. Because the material is breathable, leather products aren't difficult to dry either after they have been washed. 

To get the best out of any leather product, you need to look after them and as leather is easy to clean, it's not any extra trouble.

8. Timeless Style

Leather is not a trend. It does not come in and out of style. Every peice of genuine leather is considered stylish in all seasons and eras.

9. Signature Smell

Clothes made from synthetic fibers and fabrics have been considered as damaging to the environment during the manufacturing process as they release harmful gases.  As leather is a natural material, no harmful chemicals were used to create it - making it eco-friendly!

Nothing beats the smell of genuine leather. After buying a bag or jacket made of synthetic leather, you can find it has an odd smell. Man-made materials are usually made with different chemicals that make them have a strange stink. The smell of synthetic shoes can be made worse if your feet have a habit of smelling after a long shift.
