Are these Hanover longwings made of Black shell cordovan leather?

    These look like shell cordovan leather shoes to me because of the wave on the front of the vamp and puffy area of thickness around the eyelets.The only thing is that they do have creases as well. Can anyone confirm this yes or no?

    Thanks for the reply. I think I have found another pair of Shell cordo these are Florsheim. Again these have the roll and the puffy thickness around the eyelets. What's your opinion on these.

    Those aren't. You can tell by the wrinkles. And there are a couple threads in classic menswear where you should be posting these. Not General Chat.

    Those Florsheims are not.
