Here is a new run for our classic cap toe boot but this time made using the classic HIRO last & the beautiful whiskey Shell Cordovan!
Our first impression when we started working with it, is that weve found this Shells to be softer & more flexible (pretty similar to the US-made one in terms of flexibility & tanning) than the Japanese one were 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.
Goodyear welted on the classic round HIRO last & finished with double chestnut tanned leather soles, this is a super classic choice. A French super natural calf lining & thick vegetable leather insoles is what conform the inner part of this beautiful boot.
Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, these runs are extremely limited.
