Curious about black cordovan shoes; other colors seem to over time change color (burgundy, brown, etc.) and get lighter with color variations over time.....do black cordovan leather shoes do the same, in other words, do they lighten up to a grayish color with wear? Anyone with experience with black cordovan, could you share your experience? Thanks!
I have an older pair of black leeds and black wingtips from another shoemaker that are 20+ years old and they are still black as can be...also I have a 20-30 year old pair of Florscheim burgundy that are still very burgundy looking.
Picked up an old pair 15-20 yr old Alden #8 and it fairly brownish.... own a pair of older MacNeil's that I think were brown originally that are also sort of multi colored brown now. I really should call AE and see if it was brown or #8 originally
