It's time to introduce to our leather range something really unique that we've been working for a long time until we got it just right—the Waxed Shell Cordovan.
 
Shell Cordovan is one of the most sought-after leathers in the shoemaking industry, and that is simply because it is so good.
 
For this new & exclusive development we've been working exclusively with American shells—tanned by traditional vegetable tanning expert & family owned tannery, to develop this article exclusively made for Meermin.
 
For this singular development, shells go through a straight vegetable tan with a newly developed formula of liquors, oils and waxes resulting in an extremely pliable, soft and casual Shell Cordovan, while retaining all the shell fiber density and structure. With an unglazed and heavily waxy surface—ready for an aggressive patina from day one. Something really unique and unseen before.

As you might know, Shell Cordovan is an equine leather made exclusively from a fibrous membrane with is located beneath the horsehide on the rump. From a horsehide, exclusively 2 shells of about 2 sqf can be obtained, with a roughly total footage of 4 sqf of Shell Cordovan.
 
It is really a category on its own, it is a very unique material that is made differently, that we need to work with it differently and it wears really differently if compared with calfskin or cowhide.
 
You can be sure that anything made out of this Waxy Shell Cordovan will age extremely well & will acquire its very own character through a truly aggressive patina making every pair simply unique.
 
Very Restricted availability.

The quintessential Jumper boot
in our exclusive Waxed
Shell Cordovan.


Ultraflex System. True comfort.

This Jumper Boot has been built on our Ultraflex System dedicated Last – the ROD Last.

The ROD last features soft & casual lines that perfectly fit the Jumper Boot's style. Keeping the casual look from our HOK last, but adjusted to be able to accommodate the double insole system during production, without affecting the overall fit. We do recommend taking the same size you wear on the HOK last, for a good fit and an almost non-existent break in.

The Footbed is filled with our adaptative Memory Foam on the forepart, while keeping the arch support with the steel shank & cork filler on the backpart.

The Welting insole, the structural insole which the welt is stitched to. Made of a Full grain Vegetable tanned leather which provides the structure to the boot & support needed.

On top of the Welting insole we've added an additional layer of our Memory Foam, the Removable Insole which is fully lined with full grain calf and aside from adding another level of comfort, is removable if extra room is needed.

The result is a flexible boot that, while providing the necessary support, is extremely comfortable, without forgetting the style — keeping the overall aesthetics and proportions. The insulation this system provides is superb, the wearers foot sits almost 5cm comfortably separated to the ground — as opposed with a cemented shoe which can be just a few millimeters.

Despite its outer robust look & construction, these boots are as soft and flexible as it gets, and will adapt to your walking pattern beautifully.

A boot that you'll love and wear at all times, our Team has put a lot of time & effort developing this concept and the result is amazing. Needless to say, that as the rest of our shoes & boots, this Jumper boot is fully rebuildable when the time comes.

A truly unique boot.
