    Testing, testing 1 2 3

    There has been so much of misinformation regarding shell cordovan and rain in this thread alone. I remember Ron Rider saying that shell cordovan should be worn in rain and one should not fear the consequences. I am going to take the word of the expert and do a little test. That above is the picture of the first batch Harlech taking on New England rain yesterday and today. This is my first experience with shell so far it seems that shell cordovan handles rain much better than calf. Last night all I did was to brush the shoes quickly and they looked almost new. I will keep testing and update accordingly.
    On the other hand I do not like the way shell creases or rolls. Maybe that is something that will grow on me.

    Would there be any interest for a veldtschoen boot like the Snowdon in brown shell?
    I dunno if they'd do a veldt construction with shell, but that would be really cool.

    You guys are in it for a treat. Skye is a great boot. I just received my pair in Chestnut, great boot all along. I am sure it will look awesome in cordovan too. I am looking forward to seeing how these turn out.

    I will man, remember I live Northeast and by the time I get home it is already dark. I will take some pictures this weekend under the natural light if whether cooperates.

    I will be a game for another Skye GMTO in grain color, preferably burgundy grain.
