    Just curious about your opinions on some Knapp Bros shoes I bought.

    I also found these Hanovers at a thrift and they cleaned up exceptionally well. I'm certain these are Shell cordovan.

    The Hanovers were covered in a white residue and nasty polish build up but turned out nice.

    Any thoughts on whether or not the Knapps are shell? The lace holes appear like they might have signs of being shell cordovan but I can't be sure.
