I'm with Jcusey on this one. Cordovan is nice, but not worth the extra money to me...

Mr. Harris, I could not agree more, cordovan is HOT, HEAVY, and although it will hold an incrdible shine, quite often looks unfinished when not cared for correctly. My preference for comfort, feel, and weight would always be a good calf skin.I'm with Jcusey on this one. Cordovan is nice, but not worth the extra money to me...
Never as fake-looking as some of the corrected leather Prada uses in her men's dress shoes.One more controversial topic to add: Because of cordovan's unique, shinier look and texture, people who don't know or appreciate it may think it is lower quality, plasticky leather or, dare I say, pleather.

Couldn't agree with you more there. I wouldn't touch a Prada shoe with a 10 foot pole. Black cheesy leather.... horrible. But I bet the margins are great.Never as fake-looking as some of the corrected leather Prada uses in her men's dress shoes.
