Looks like corrected grain leather. Worst of the worst. They will disgrace your entire family. Please throw them in the garbage immediately.

I didn't get to see the pict, but at worst, I'd have donated them rather than tossed them.

I wasn't sure, myself. But I didn't get to look closely before the OP took down the pic.

I didn't really throw them out. I'll give them to someone in need.

My guess is that they aren't shell cordovan. I'm inclined to believe they are corrected grain leather as another poster suggested. If they had been worn a bit, I'd be able to know for sure, but even as they are, the leather just isn't what I'm used to seeing with shell cordovan.

Thanks for posting the pic again.
