I was only able to find an old thread on this about 8 years ago... Figured I'd start a new one. I'm able to source a black pair of cordovan wingtips at a significant discount. Now, I'd prefer burgundy, but what do you guys think about black shell cordovans? It's easier to maintain than calf skin, but how does it patina (if it does at all) over time? Any photos of a patina-ed black shell cordovan shoes would be great! Thanks Gents!
