Product Description

The ultimate Shell Cordovan longwing! Made in our stunning Japanese Shell Cordovan in this beautiful burgundy shade.

This style is a super classic when it comes to Cordovan shoes, the all time American gunboat!

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 precious leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time developing a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.

Goodyear welted on the classic round RUI last & finished with double chestnut tanned leather soles, if you are looking for a classic model this one would be a wise choice.
