I was helping my dad gather some old things and came across these old shoes. Wingtips from the 70s. He wears them about once every 3 years. They were last polished ... never. ;-)

Inside the shoe on the heel it says, "Winthrop Royale Genuine Welt"

He seems to think they're cordovan, I'm skeptical. What do you think?

They don't look like cordovan to me.

They do not look like cordovan.

Get a shoe-tree exclusively for them and leave it in for at least a few weeks before taking the shoe tree out and give them a good polish.
