If you've ever wished Shark Week could last all year, these are your shoes. We've been running belts in sharkskin for years, because it's got this incredible semi-matte, almost velvety texture and it's one of the most durable skins in the animal kingdom.

“On the surface, the answer is super simple – it means they are resoleable… Resoling your shoes is essentially the same as replacing the tires on your car. When you wear your tires down, you don't get a new car... you install new tires, get them balanced & re-aligned, and you're good to go for a few more years. Then you repeat the process.”
