Here is a new run for our classic cap toe boot but this time made using the classic RUI last & the beautiful Brown Shell Cordovan!
This very limited Meermin Shell Cordovan boots are made, using the Shell Cordovan handmade by Shinki Tannery, a family owned tannery in the heart of Japan, following ancient methods. Full vegetable tanned made following a 10 month process where every shell is pit tanned, naturally air dried & glazed by hand in order to achieve its very transparent & characteristic finish. That is a quite long process, but the result its totally worth it!
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.
