What is Shell cordovan?
Shell Cordovan —the cream of the crop when it comes to luxurious quality shoe leather. Cordovan is a type of leather that really stands out.
Its glossy finish, refined texture, and durable nature makes it the leather of choice for high-end shoe brands.
Unlike conventional cowhide leather, Cordovan is an equine leather. It’s made from horsehide or, more specifically, the fibrous shell that sits beneath the surface hide of a horse’s hind quarters.
In contrast to calf, Shell Cordovan is completely smooth, without a grain. This gives Cordovan shoes their high-shine and luxurious finish, which suits rich dark browns or cognac colors, or the classic burgundy.
It also behaves a little differently than calf. It’s stiffer, and while it does become incredibly supple and mould to the wearer’s feet over time, it does takes longer to break in. We expect a pair of our Cordovan shoes – well cared for and resoled when required – to last for decades.
