Genuine Shell Cordovan is the art of tanning at its finest.  More than just a color, it is a very specific leather, from a particular part of a horsehide.The irregular oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months. The result: Beautiful Dinkelacker horseleather shoes and some pictures from my visit at Hoween (Horween Leather Company) in Chicago Leather Company, Shaving, Leather Shoes, Shells, At Least, Oxford Shoes, Chicago, Dress Shoes, Lace Up
