Based on the environmental condition that shoe will be used, it has to provide optimum comfort with use of high quality leather parts. Leather as a material is often chosen when considering clothing properties and used as upper, lining and insole material in shoe manufacturing. Especially lining and insole materials have quiet significant functions and could affect the health of foot and comfort of the wearer working under heavy conditions and may even increase their work efficiency. The selection of raw material should be considered according to the final purposes of the shoe and new special or technological methods should be chosen instead of classic beam house processes.

The absence of the leather product standards, based on the final product usage purposes, standard values have to be determined for the shoe upper leathers. As a result, the shoe upper leather used in the different environments needs to be investigated in further scientific researches.
