Received a reply from Horween:

"Thank you for the e mail and interest in Horween Leather Company.

The leather you are inquiring about is our Cordovan with Scotch Grain print.

We can still emboss the print into our Cordovan when requested, but we have not seen this request for quite some time as companies are focusing on filling the smooth Cordovan orders due to the limited supply in the marketplace.

In addition, at the moment we are sold out of our Cordovan leather until the middle to late part of 2014 and we are not accepting orders at this time.

You are welcome to check back the latter part of this year to see if there are any changes in our supply situation.

Please keep me posted to any questions"

I e-mailed EG last night but will not expect a reply until mid next week.

It's bad news about the Cordovan though, this Cordovan shortage is getting worse and worse. But to my knowledge EG does not buy directly through Horween, I believe they source from leather merchant AA Crack and hopefully they still have stock.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

Maybe aa crack has some? Might be worth asking them

I would not buy my leather from a merchant with this name wink.gif Or is it AA for crack addicts?

Do you treat this with anything prior to wearing them in the inclement  weather?

no, but if i start seeing any bumps in the leather ill make sure to bitch about it here!

There's three sides to this. A) They're just shoes, wear them; 2) Getting the leather uppers wet will them more susceptible to creasing, water marks, and require a shine after to look good; & iii) Dainite/Thames sole is a good compromise, since at least water won't seep upwards from the sole and soak the shoe.

I have a pair of EGs that I use as rain shoes, basically because I ordered them with the Thames sole. Occaisional polishing makes the leather upper plenty water resistant. Though they are black, and therefore much less prone to water spots.

In a hardcore downpour, I'd consider sneakers/rain boots however, no point in intentionally soaking through a pair of EGs.

P.S. They share rain duty with a pair of C&J brown suede shoes with a Dainite sole. Suede is great in the rain.
