Calf or Cordovan? Probably Edward Green - Page 2

post #16 of 21
In general I prefer calf to cordovan. I think calf looks better, and I've never found the durability of my calf shoes to be poor enough that I feel like I needed cordovan. I didlike the waxy, rippled look of cordovan but that's just me. Even my winter dress boots are leather FWIW. After buying a few pairs of cordovan shoes (Alden, Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren, and Carmina) I've sold them all, except for a pair of burgundy Carmina wingtips which have a sick color and depth without the stereotypical ripples or waxiness.
