Just got these Jarman saddle shoes from ebay.
The vendor had them described as Cordovan, but seeing the "Made in Korea" label inside, I'm not too sure.
Not that it matters, as I didn't even notice the Cordovan in the auction title, just saw some nice saddle shoes in my size for a great price.

95% sure that those are shell. Maybe post a few more pics from different angles. Some of the lines on the black portion look like they aren't shell, so its' possible that the orange portion is shell and the other portion isn't. More pictures would tell for sure.

If not shell, the patina is nice.  

Not shell, and that's not patina. That's either a cheap corrected grain leather, or not even leather.
