Chokeberry comes in petrol gray and owes its delicately textured surface to the traditional way the wool has been processed.
Crafted according to tradition
The upper is made of traditionally crafted Portuguese burel fabric (felted wool loden) from our partner Ecola. The wool comes from Portuguese heritage sheep breeds.
The special way the wool is processed lends Chokeberry its smooth, finely textured surface in a subtle petrol gray that is perfect for combining with all kinds of colors – Chokeberry is a reliable companion all winter long.
Wool on the outside and on the inside not only keeps all feet toasty warm when the weather gets frosty – its temperature-regulating properties also mean that this mid cut won’t let them get sweaty.
Felted wool loden (100% virgin wool) - petrol gray
Lining / mid-sole:
Felted wool loden (100% virgin wool)
Microfiber (100% polyamide) - gray-blue

True to size as measured with the Fitkit. Runs a little wider and provides ample room at the forefoot. For narrow feet, we recommend an insole.
Video tutorials explaining how to use the Fitkit and determine the correct fit are available on the Wildling Shoes YouTube channel.
Waterproofing before first-time wear
There is no need to apply waterproofing treatment to the entire shoe right out of the box – that has already been taken care of during production (and in this case, doubling up won’t make it last longer). Before first-time wear, we do recommend that you waterproof the edging again. This may cause the edging to darken slightly, so don’t be surprised.
Tip: Using a brush is the best way to apply the waterproofing product. If you choose to spray it on, be sure to cover the rest of the shoe. Repeat the waterproofing treatment as needed.
The best way to clean soiled shoes is by knocking them together when they are dry, brushing them carefully as needed when dry, or by wiping them carefully with a damp cloth.
Not machine washable.
We recommend periodic follow-up waterproofing treatments with a suitable product.
When putting on, please note: Widen the opening of the shoe sufficiently by loosening the laces. This minimizes wear on the material and extends the life of the shoe.
Every single shoe is a handmade one of a kind, with an upper made from natural material. The structure and coloration may exhibit minor irregularities.
