The Fonte Verde Collection
Combining beauty and technology with environmental responsibility
“Fonte Verde” is the brand new, exclusive collection of beautiful footwear from trusted British brand Woof Wear. This elegant new collection offers a selection of riding boots for every equestrian, each one perfectly tailored to combine the beauty of a traditional boot with Woof Wear’s latest technology while having environmental considerations at its heart, thus creating the ultimate, high-quality and practical equestrian footwear.
Looking After the Environment
“Fonte Verde” is a Portuguese phrase meaning “Green Source”. When Woof Wear set out to create a collection of premium riding and country boots they were drawn to the skills, heritage and quality leathers offered by craftsmen in Portugal. Their attention to detail, precision and experience has been a worthwhile investment, the proof being in the excellent quality and finish of the Fonte Verde collection.
Woof Wear believe that the most environmentally friendly product is one that is made to last, only uses materials that are friendly to the planet and travel the shortest distance. Fonte Verde boots are only created from high-quality leather that has been sourced and tanned in European factories. Asian leather tanning factories are particularly bad polluters, so using European factories minimises pollution. Every factory producing leather for Fonte Verde is visited to ensure they have good environmental and human practices.
All Fonte Verde packaging is 100% recyclable – there is no single-use plastic.
Choosing the Right Leather
For the best quality riding boots, the leather needs to be hard-wearing and durable while also being soft and eye-catching. The leather used in the Fonte Verde collection has been sourced from European cows, which are known for producing leather that is superior to their Asian cousins. The leather is then tanned in Portuguese factories, keeping the environmental impact to a minimum. Sourcing and producing leather in this way ensures the process is ethical and is done with care for the environment.
Woof Wear’s Smart Technology
Fonte Verde’s cross-over of traditional beauty and the latest technology ensures these premium boots are supremely comfortable. The Smart Zone Inner Sole combines five foams of different densities to provide stability and unparalleled levels of comfort. These layers of foam are ergonomically positioned to secure the foot and strategically cushion the heel and ball of the foot, offering you day-long comfort.
Woof Wear’s designers have created a unique sole, the Smart Traction Outsole, which delivers excellent riding performance as well as grip when walking. It offers just the right level of grip on the ball of the boot to help secure your foot in the stirrup, as well as featuring a steel shank to increase stability. Grip on the heel is strategically placed, and the sole features “one direction grip” to deliver a high level of traction when walking – ideal for the wet and muddy conditions we often experience in the UK!
