As I bought a new pair of Garmont last month, which are my everyday shoes [just in case a rugged path pops up in the middle of the city!], I suddenly noticed the leather was specified as chamois, which got me worried as this is a wild mountain antelope that I thought was protected  to some extent. [Apparently, killing a chamois amounts to a dream come true for some people…] After checking further, I realised the named extended to any kind of non-abrasive leather.
