DV015 fits true to size.


  • Boots with zipper fastening
  • Made from vegetable-tanned calfskin
  • Hand-carved and lacquered wood accents
  • Fully lined in calfskin
  • Soles in 100% leather
  • DV015 is made from vegetable-tanned calfskin in a gorgeous deep garnet colour and it is an alternative to the classic Chelsea boot
  • Its fastening is on the inside, made from the highest grade metal zipper with fully polished elements
  • The outside boasts a ‘cheeky’ slash opening trimmed with a lacquered mahogany detailed
  • Our mahogany comes from a sustainable plantation. Each component is entirely hand-carved by some of the world’s best wood artisans from Java. The base curvature of each piece follows the natural angles of the foot and their various sizes are made in proportion to the size of the shoe
  • The lacquering process is entirely done by hand and is incredibly time consuming. The application is done by coating the wood in dust thin layers of material. The lacquer is sprayed layer upon layer and left to dry. Then the surface is sanded with superfine sand paper and lacquered again. The process is repeated until obtaining a solid high gloss. The components are then buffered for a piano-like finish
  • DV015 is entirely lined in super soft calfskin leather
  • Vanassibaras will never smell unpleasant. Our shoes are mounted on a breathable raw leather insole which naturally absorbs excessive sweat from the feet. That’s an old technique that only true luxury brands can afford
  • The sole is hand-made too. DV015 has double leather soles that are stitched on the inside and on the outside
  • Natural vegetable dyed calfskin used at Vanassibara ages beautifully over time. Due to the exceptional quality of the raw material, the elasticity of the leather fibers have been relatively well preserved during the vegetable tanning process
  • A good neutral leather protection cream may be used to maintain the leather
  • The best way to preserve your leather sole is to start wearing them on dry ground first. Avoid getting the soles wet whilst the shoes are still new. After that, occasional wetness and dirt from the ground won’t affect its durability but never let the soles become completely soaked
  • Calf is a relatively strong leather but like all leather products, they might become marked with wear and occasionally require maintenance
  • Gently wipe the product with a soft damp cloth and allow to air dry away from direct heat
  • Avoid contact with liquids containing alcohol or solvents, as this will cause irreversible damage to the surface of the leather
  • Should be stored away from humidity and sources of heat
