Shell Cordovan - the best leather in the world

Cordovan is an equine leather made from the flat muscle (or shell) beneath the hide on the rump of the horse.

The handmade production of these shoes is one of the really ancient arts of shoemakery.
The process of gaining & crafting the shell leather can take up to 6 months.

The Sole - JR (Joh. Rendenbach)

The traditional method of oak-bark ground-tanning has prevailed through four generations of leathermaking at Rendenbach.

Leather with the JR-Brand label is waterproof and extremely abrasion resistant, tough yet flexible, very comfortable to wear and optically distinguished by its attractive grain and warm, woody colour.

So much love for the detail. The shoe wax & polish are very exquisite and provide full protection for your shoes.
