Especially for men, leather shoes are even more important. Whether it is fashion week, red carpet, or major exchange meetings, the appearance rate of leather shoes is almost 100 %. The first choice of men is to wear leather shoes.

No matter what style of leather shoes, our most common is sheepskin shoes and leather shoes. Some luxury brands will have limited snakeskin and even crocodile skin. Not only expensive, it is also a harm to wild animals.

Innovative Indonesian guy, a 25 -year -old entrepreneur Nurman, chose another material to make the texture of “crocodile skin”, which is comparable to the crocodile skin of “Hermes”. Looking at this picture, can you guess what skin this is made?

The answer is: chicken feet. That’s right, it’s the skin of the claws you like to eat the peppers.

Although in our Greater China, chicken feet can be made into many foods, such as boneless phoenix claws, braised chicken feet, chicken claws, pepper chicken palm … Each one can not stop, Especially the q’s soft and slippery chicken feet are the stubborn taste in the eyes of the food.

But unlike China, although chicken feet are also Indonesia’s cuisine, the “tough” skin on the chicken feet is not eaten. Before cooking, the locals tear off the outer skin of the chicken feet and throw them away.

When Nurman observed these discarded chicken feet accumulated into the mountains, they found that its texture was very similar to snake patterns or crocodile leather goods.

Coupled with the circle of Nurman’s father Ramdhay’s fast food industry, the chicken feet collected from the collection became Nurman’s “raw materials” for leather shoes.

Through a series of processes such as artificial peeling, washing, de -flavor, dyeing, and drying, you can get chicken feet.

After compacking, flat, screening, stitching, and final suture, you can get shoe leather like crocodile skin texture.

The team members are currently 5. They usually consume 10 days to produce all or part of the shoes made of chicken feet. Although the average pair of leather shoes requires 45 chicken feet, the price of the shoes is between $ 35 (RM148) and $ 140 (RM592).

Compared to crocodile skin and snake skin, this method is more friendly to ecology and nature. Moreover, the chicken feet are used as a garbage in Indonesia. After making shoes, it is a waste use. It is environmentally friendly and a green cycle.

I especially want to tell Nurman that even chicken feet can be used. Do n’t think about duck feet and goose palms?
