Results of the first Horween football print cordovan pair made specially for our private GMTO! We have had a couple of artisans here at the factory complimenting this make.

What are your thoughts? As we expected the pattern was slightly ironed out in the toe area. However we managed to maintain as much print as possible.View attachment 1205735View attachment 1205736
Can’t wait to get these

During the weekend, I took the sneakers to the test with a little walk in the forest (sockless, as you can see). I think it passed the test with flying colors. I quite like them actually. Maybe I'm gonna get another pair of these in other color/leather.

I was talking to a friend about Carmina's Black Funchal Unlined Captoe Oxford. Has anyone had experience with the leather? I've never seen an unlined oxford before, how does the inside look/work? I'm guessing there's toe stiffener in there?

@Carmina, are there any more of these hides available? Enough for a one-off 10.5UK sneaker? I have an MTO fee waiver to blow and this looks about as nice as I expected.
We have no more football print cordovan for the time being, unfortunately. We can try to source some more samples if you are interested.

My wallet thanks you for this answer. I'm certainly interested in any type of unique cordovan shell you can source. :) As are many on SF.

Now that you've introduced me to the Sneakers model in shell, it's only a matter of time before I get another one I think. It's a very nice model.

Those look great! I haven't seen tracking on mine, but I wasn't expecting to see any pop up for another month. Is this a dark burgundy or brown shell?
Thanks so much! This is Armagnac shell. TBH this really exceeds my expectations. I was surprised by the burnishing on the toe as well as I thought you could not do burnishing on shell.

Very cool. AE's recent bourbon shell release had a lot of toe burnishing as well; we were all surprised by it then too.

Just received the unlined chukka GMTO here. It's way ahead of schedule and they came out really nicely!!!

Thanks so much! @Carmina

Wow, I think St. Crispin makes the most beautiful chukka; but man Carmina gives them a hard run for their money....just beautiful. What is crazy is how different the color of your Armagnac looks from my boots in Armagnac.

I know right. The color is so different from all armagnac pictures I have seen online. The burnishing is also so good that I did not expect.

Thanks man! I am expecting a lot of wear out of them!

Exactly, although I have to say your shade is what I am accustomed to seeing, and expected to get when I got mine.
