The Shell Cordovan, non-Alden Shoe and Boot Thread - Page 38

post #556 of 1028
I'm going to stop by the [only] local shoe repair place and ask if they have any experience stretching cordovan. The instep in my new RL Lindricks is a little snug. Length is perfect and width is on the narrow side but fine. The instep is the only thing that needs a bit of a stretch, and mostly only on one shoe.

Is that a pretty standard job for a cobbler or are there any special considerations about SC boots that I should be aware of? Thanks.

Have you worn them a couple of times?  The word on the street is that the RL cordovans do stretch a bit--at least comparatively more to most cordovan shoes and boots.

I've worn them maybe half a dozen times. I just wear them with thinner socks like these. Seems like the proper use of a stretcher like this could do the job, eh?

Namor, that is the fit pic of that boot that makes me regret not buying them during the recent sale. Really nice looking!

God Roger, you have to stop this. I weep with joy at the sight of your divine shoes. I thought your museum calf Vass' were the be all and end all, but now these!

Thanks guys.  velomane - I'm not sure I'm ever going to top the Vass museum, but I am pretty tickled to have a similar rich golden shade in a more casual shoe.

If anyone is keen on getting a dark brown cordovan balmoral boot, give me a shout. We need two more to get a group MTO going.

The shell in Argentinian shell, not Horween.
