Cordovan itself is actually not a colour, but a material. There is no "Cordovan Colour" although Cordovan is most commonly burgundy.


I realize this is an old post but I cannot seem to find any Saphir Cordovan in Burgundy? Any hints ?

For shoes made of the MATERIAL cordovan, Saphir offers 6 colors plus neutral. One of the colors offered (71) is the COLOR cordovan, which by process of elimination seems to be burgundy, a/k/a "#8".

Check out The Hanger Project for their colors of each cream and polish they carry,

Thank you Sir! I actually have a few already however never seem to find the burgundy (lighter than color 8) that I often see advertised. Meanwhile using the neutral.

The responses in this thread are confusing. I really hope I can get a definitive answer from someone.

 

Kiwi makes a 'burgundy' or 'original brown' polish, and I'm wondering if that would be okay to use with my burgundy shoes pictured below.

 

Do you think Saphir's burgundy is better than Kiwi? Or Should I use AE Carnauba burgundy (neutral)?

I wish we could make this a sticky.
