I found a pair of what appear to be Dak's shell cordovan longwings that were Made in Canada. Pulled them out of the back of my fathers closest. He thinks they are at least 15 years old. The shell appears to be in a good shape, with minimal brushing with a horse hair brush I was able to bring some of the shine back. The fact they were so easy to restore leads me to believe they may not be real shell, as I've read about shell and it seems they are very sensitive to drying out. Anyone know anything about Dak's and whether they were producing real shell? Whether they are real or not they look nice, not a particularly elegant last, but I'm wearing them with jeans today, they have a nice think leather sole that appears to be very sturdy.
