The leather used by Dubarry for its footwear is specially treated and absorbs less moisture requiring 70% less time to dry compared to other leather types. It also ensures that your Dubarry footwear will always be soft and supple. The leather used for the Dubarry footwear is the full cowhide with all its naturally occurring imperfections, providing the boots with that rugged ‘lived-in’ look.
The Dubarry clothing collection is fashioned from a wide variety of different fabrics. These range from durable weather resistant outer shells to fine 100% wool tweeds. Dubarry’s philosophy is to always select “best in class” for our clothing.
Specially developed by Dubarry, the soles on our boots are directly moulded to the upper to create one piece, with no gluing or stitching, giving a perfect seal to keep out water. It has a durable rubber outsole and spongy polyurethane innersole for lightweight optimal comfort. The soles on our Country Boots are also designed to be ‘stirrup friendly’ for light equestrian use and have also been rigorously tested for all outdoor pursuits. Dubarry Country boots also perform superbly in snow.
Our Sailing Boots, Aquasport range and Deck Shoes all benefit from our award-winning outsole system. The Dubarry NonSlip – NonMarking™ outsole, was born out of a brief to Dubarry’s in–house engineering team to produce ‘the best non–slip rubber outsole for grip on deck’. The result of that research and design work is a sole system that significantly reduces the potential for aquaplaning or slipping and is trusted by sailors around the world.
