Gaziano meets shell cordovan

“Cordovan! It’s big in the USA but used for all the wrong reasons. It has a treatment on top of it which, in my mind, makes it look like rubber, and it cannot breathe that well either. Cordovan is 3 to 4 mm thick which causes countless headaches to shoemakers. Cordovan also looks too rustic for everyday shoes. But customers keep ordering it in oxfords and full brogues. If it is suitable for anything, it would be a chukka boot or plain derby with a rubber sole, and that’s it.”
