Targeted application of sharkskin appears to be the mainstream norm right now in retail. Tony Lama and Chippewa are good examples of the application of sharkskin to the heels, counters, and tips of boots. Shark is durable in a wide range of conditions. It doesn’t hurt that Shark skin has a distinctive look either. Combine a distinctive look with solid functional utility and you can’t lose!
