    Hello gents, I've got these shoes available, and the heels look like they've never been worn. Get a nice piece of history! (There are a few more pictures available on ebay.)

    Afternoon, gents! I'm seeking your informed wisdom. I just splurged on my first-ever pair of shell cordovan shoes (AE Dalton), which I still haven't worn beyond trying on indoors. I've spent hours reading various threads here and elsewhere on shell care. I want to protect this investment from...

    I bought this pair of vintage Florsheim shell cordovan longwings, and they arrived with some cracking around a couple of the eyelets. is there any way to revive or repair these? They're hard to see when the shoe is on, so they don't really bother me as a visual flaw, but is there a way to repair...

    I found some nice shell cordovan loafers from Hong Kong custom shoemaker Lee Kee. Since they were custom made, no size is indicated. Is there any way to accurately size a shoe besides running around like Cinderella's prince, asking anyone/everyone to try them on for fit? Some sort of expandable...

    Good morning everyone, I have just started purchasing Alden shell cordovan shoes, and I must say, love them! I currently have black and color 8, and eventually want to get all the colors. I'm quite interested in knowing how everyone here would rank the four non-black colors - color #8...

    Hi I am new but reading the forum helped me make the leap from $150 shoes to some "real shoes" -- and I decided that I might as well go whole hog, or rather shell cordovan due to inspiration from this site. So I wanted to thank everyone. I pretty much only wear black shoes (architect...lots of...

    The new AE catalogue is out for Fall 2011 and there's some interesting new models and variations on older ones which I think we should be paying attention to. Here's the link to the catalogue in PDF format (size 7MB, warning for dial-up connections): . Here's a roundup of a few models that...

    I have a pair of 93605 marked Florsheim Longwings. In order to bring out their full potential I (mis)used some polish removal techniques I've picked up on the internet. I used a dull knife edge to scrape out some of the excess polish and then a wet rag to try and scrub the creases. Once I used...

    After waiting several weeks to receive my (long sought after) BB black cordovan wingtips, they finally arrived yesterday (well, actually they arrived at the store over a week ago, and the SA didn't call to let me know until yesterday). I opened the box to inspect them before trying them on; I...
