I find the idea of a cordovan Dover foolish.
When I think EG, my mind goes to calf, Zug, gator, croc, hippo, snake, bullfrog, elephant, ostrich et al. For crup, there are so many other firms who specialize in cordovan.
If someone wants to give me free EG shell shoes, I will not object. But I'd rather have country calf or something more interesting from my favorite maker!
