“Whiskey shell cordovan”, the words alone instill powerful feelings in mere mortals. And for good reason, whiskey is one of the rarest cordovan colors. That’s because to tan the color Horween needs “clear” shells, which means no imperfections. By default that eliminates a good number of them.
Edward Green uses Genuine Horween Shell Cordovan because when you make quality shoes you must use quality leathers. They also handle it well and don’t over treat it with products. That allows the leather to develop a natural patina and highlights.
If you’ve never owned a pair in cordovan you can’t imagine what you’re missing, the same is true for a pair of Edward Green shoes….
