It’s been almost 3 months since the horsehide footwear contest began, and I reckon my shell cordovan Stow boots from Tricker’s is beginning to pick up a little bit of wear.
I have to say, at this stage, I haven’t worn these boots long enough to make do an informed review just yet.
Shell cordovan is quite hardy after all, and these boots are breaking in more slowly than my other Tricker’s pairs.
I will share some photos though, perhaps giving you an idea of the initial evo. of a pair of shell shoes.
At the park:
This pair has not been polished since new – a coat of leather feed is all.
The creasing profile and the overall aesthetic is remarkably different from non-waxy leathers, including the calf leather that is Tricker’s mainstay.
My opinion regarding shell cordovan footwear?
Can’t really tell you yet, but do check back in a couple of months 🙂
