finishing is common. it's only when it's shoddy that's a problem.

Of course. I was responding to the poster who acted like it was unheard of to apply a post tanning finnish.

So long as other manufacturers don't start painting with RustOleum like Duckie!

Thanks for the info. Sorry I wasn’t aware of it. You learn something everyday !! I guess I never seen a shell cordovan with such finish that stands out that much !!

So it sounds like your burgundy longwings and NAMOR's smooth black are indeed shell, just with a poor finish, due to whatever reason?

appears to be the case. I tried bending the leather and compared it to calfskin and the creasing was consistent with what you see in shell. I am still unsure because if the paint may be covering up whatever is underneath.

I think MYHABIT is selling Duckie Brown for Florsheim on Monday. So we'll have lots more to talk about then!

Isn't MYHABIT run by Amazon?

I doubt myhabit will sell the cordos. 2/3 weeks ago myhabit had Florsheim on sale. They had the worst models of all florsheim.
If they have the cordo boots on sale at under $300 may pick up a pair.
