Bringing back our full brogue country boot made in our newly introduced Italian Burgundy Shell Cordovan! Featuring a robust double rubber sole.
Our first impression when we started working with it, is that we've found this Shells to be softer & more flexible (pretty similar to the US-made one in terms of flexibility & tanning) than the Japanese one we're also using. While, on the other hand, we found the Japanese Shell finish more natural & very transparent showing the different & beautiful hues of the Shell, while the Italian version is more regular in tone, but when sun-lightened up shows all its beauty. Different ways to produce the same incredible material & both great on its own way!
This Italian Shell Cordovan is handmade by a small, family owned Tannery located in the heart of the Tuscany, full vegetable tanned, naturally air dried, finished & glazed by hand to achieve this soft & beautiful result.
Shoes made with this beautiful leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time. Shoes with this precious leather will develope a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.
Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, these runs are extremely limited.
Goodyear welted on our classic round RUI last, that is perfectly balanced for this brogued style. Finished with a sturdy double rubber sole, that will provide an extra traction if needed & comfort.
A superb winter partner that for sure will make you stand out!
