Genuine Shell Cordovan

Defined by its exceptional luster, durability and painstaking production process. Shell Cordovan, made properly, has a smooth finish and is practically impermeable. It’s a remarkable material well-known for its limited availability and expensive price tag.

Shell Cordovan is extracted from a layer beneath the skin at the horse’s croupe (rump). It has a uniquely tight pore and fiber structure. On average only one pair of shell cordovan boots can be made from each horse hide. The tanning process takes approximately 6 months, much of which is done by hand by our partners at the Rocado tannery in Tuscany.

Sizing Recommendations

  • Order the same size that you wear in other leather boots or leather dress shoes
  • Do not order the same size that you wear in sneakers as they tend to run 1/2 to 1 size larger than our boots
  • If you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the smaller size
  • Of the customers who order the wrong size, over 81% order a 1/2 too large
  • All of our boots are in traditional 'D' width
