But HEAPS of people must have written to them because now they've put up on their site that it's "Vanilla goat leather. Dyed ocelot-print goat fur (Italy) trim. Crescent toe. Lace-up shaft. 4" stacked heel. "Cava" is made in Italy." whereas before they said it was "natural ocelot fur(Italy) trim"
So now people in South America won't think the US is hypocritical and more importantly - no endangered species died to make the boot!
