Crafted in rich Horween shell cordovan, the black upper has a natural shine to it. This makes it an excellent dress shoe and an appropriate black tie shoe as well. Black shell requires very little polishing, so the shine stays without a lot of fuss.

If you need a solid black shoe in your closet, we enthusiastically submit this as the most versatile style that we've ever encountered
