Gentlemen,

First and foremost thank you all for all the style advice on here! For someone who has no style this site has been a game changer for me to better myself. Recently I acquired two pairs of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues: The regular calf skin one and the black shell cordovan. Both are in good shape, could get the regular ones shined/buffed a little.

For upcoming interviews which one should I wear? I'm applying for senior analyst roles at large F500 companies and want to make sure the Cordovan's aren't to flashy/shinny? My rationale is I will reserve the Cordovans for formal/important events (interviews, weddings, important meetings) and the regular park avenues as part of my weekly work rotation of shoes to wear. Any feedback or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

I personally only like shell cordovan on work boots, tassel loafers, and penny loafers. Partly because of convention (the material has been traditionally used for those styles) and partly because I think the material looks too rugged for something as dressy as an oxford.

Would keep the calfskin ones and sell the others.
