Cole Haan from the 90s (pre Nike). This is a much better made shoe than the look-a-likes that Gilt sold.

I've posted more pics of these elsewhere, but can't seem to find where. [/SPOILER

Very nice - the DWFII are unusual - how do they wear?

Santoni makes a beefy shell cordovan shoe, huh? Here are mine from a few pages back. I need to work on my shine.

beautiful, but I'm 98% sure not shell. Very reminiscent of vintage styles of the 40's.

Thanks. Really, really well. They fit great and are supportive w/o being inflexible.

Late edit: Here are a couple pics after about 30 wears:

They don't have these online anymore - can you get them in B&M stores?
Why is this showing up in the quote??

If you like shell - you *might* like these. If you don't like shell - you're going to *hate* them.
RL C&J Giffords (my beaters) - they're hella' old and have had a recraft.

I have that same pair, and I haven't worn them enough to break them in. Your pair doesn't look much more worn in than mine.
