Yeah... I got the nutmeg-colored "English-Calf" version that you mentioned. Not a bad shoe, for the money. I would have liked to find it in black; in any event, I've done my best to "antique" the shoes, and have managed to (only just) approximate a patina that is close to what EG calls Burnt Pine. If nothing else, the shoes have been fun to experiment with...Yes, they are very special. Â On the sole it states "Genuine shell cordovan". Â They had similar pairs in nutmeg colour that stated "English calf" on the sole. Â Unfortunately no captoes in my size. Â However got some split toe monk straps like that.
BTW, the black captoes are amazingly nice. Â One of the best shoes from Cole Haan. Â Easily comparable to the Artiolis they had a few years ago. Â
