saddle shell cordovan?

I never really liked u-caps, but those are, once again, fantastic. Vass does amazing things with shell.

IMO i have not seen anyone work with Shell better than Vass!

Gabor Halmos showed me some Shell Cordovan Vass shoes over a year ago. They had the most unique smell to them and I've never come across such a pleasant smell on any other companies cordovan shoes.

Do any other Vass Shell Cordovan shoe owners concur?
post #435 of 20219
Give me some saphir and I can make the cordovan smell nice. I suspect that it is more a function of some burnishing with a premium polish that gives it the smell, since the shells come from Horween as well but I could be wrong.

Although Horween claims the same process is used for all their shell, Aldens, AE and Vass all seem to have their own subtle characteristics.
