The Jackson is a new lace-up leather boot from Birkenstock. It features a water-repellant upper and waxed seams, as well as a robust, rubber sole to ensure a secure grip. And the cork frame of the outer sole provides that Birkenstock comfort you know and love. The upper is made from water-repellant, oiled nubuck leather.
Nubuck leather has a gently buffed surface with no grains. As with velvet, brushing the surface of nubuck leather displaces the fibers and leaves a visible mark. Nubuck leather is very sensitive to moisture and color, and it therefore needs to be waterproofed.
