Here is our version of the classic double monk but this time made using the beautiful Japanese cherry Shell Cordovan!
This very limited Meermin Shell Cordovan shoes are made, using the Shell Cordovan handmade by 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.
Goodyear welted on the classic round HIRO last & finished with double chestnut tanned leather soles, this is a super classic choice. As the rest of our double monks, this Shell version do also feature our signature solid stainless steel buckles.
Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, this runs are very limited.
