Just wore my Cordovan Strands out for the first time today and I am speechless. Not sure if it's the shoes that have me enthralled or if this is because these are my first pair of shoes in shell cordovan.... They looked great out of the box but after wearing them for a few hours I'm even more impressed. I followed the Mac method after taking them off at home and they look even better than they did unworn! I have never been so excited about shoes before; beautiful ripples are beginning to form and the natural shine is incomparable. Well, just thought I'd share today's experiences with you guys. Though, I realize that this post might make me seem crazy!
