This boot fits true-to-size, and should match your Brannock Foot-Measuring Device® measurements. If you are a half-size, we recommend sizing up.
The Darbi has an all-leather upper construction made from pony hair, a material often used in designer footwear and handbags.
Despite the name, pony hair is leather made from cow hides that have been shaved and dyed with colours or patterns.
It is soft, yet durable and naturally water resistant.
To clean pony hair, just wipe the leather with a damp cloth, gently comb with a small brush or toothbrush, and allow to air dry.
We construct the Darbi with a waterproof membrane underneath the leather to keep your feet dry.
All the seams are sealed pressure-sensitive EVA tape and waterproof adhesives. The stitching around the shoe is made from a non-wicking material to prevent it from absorbing water.
Each shoe is submerged in water above the sole and flexed thousands of times to make sure no water leaks through.
The outsole is made from thermo-plastic rubber molded with a lug sole pattern.
Rubber has good traction in the rain and snow, and is more durable than other commonly used man-made materials.
“Like many of Cougar’s shoes, the entire Small Batch collection is waterproof and temperature rated from -24°C to -30°C to keep your toes warm but they’re also appropriate for milder weather.
I wore my Darbi boots on a 12°C fall day while Geoff and I grabbed coffee and went for a stroll. My feet were comfortable and not overheated like I had originally feared. Honestly the best part is just finding a badass winter boot that’s not gonna mess with the flow of my outfit.”
