What product do you use to get that kind of shine on cordovan? Looks awesome!

Venetian Shoe Cream -or- Saphir Neutral Cordovan Cream. Vigorously work into the cordovan. Let sit overnight and brush vigorously in the morning.

You may also consider applying a thin layer of neutral wax to the toe and buff to shine.

Cheers!

Who among us can afford €1300 for a new pair of shoes? I never bought pre-loved shoes before, but the quality is definitely there. Heinreich Dinkelacker, made in Budapest, now I’m on the lookout for a black pair.

Is that how much Heinreich Dinkelacker goes for? I was interested in buying a pair at some point just to diversify but not sure €1300 is worth it on a brand I cannot try on first.

I got lucky in Germany and found a pair for about $800 US. They are exceptionally well made, serious tanks. But I’d be out at €1300.

Well that's the EU ballpark price. Ranges from $965 to $1555 for cordovan. You guys might get taxed less when they export them to USA. I can't fault the quality or the workmanship.

Mine are brown shell cordovan boots, and they are developing quite a nice olive patina. I was wandering through KaDeWe in Berlin one day, and bam. They were just sitting there on sale. Knowing what I knew about the maker, needless to say I was all over it.

Made to Order AE Bradleys. About 8YO. I believe you could pick any model in the AE lineup and get them in shell. The good ol days...

Rancourt bourbon shell Venetian loafers:


Nice loafers. How do you like Lactae Hevea Aspen soles? I've been eyeing Rancourt's beefroll LH loafers. Would love shell version if they still offer opportunity to MTO/custom order.

Edit: I spotted these Venetians too late on Rancourt's Instagram. My size was already sold out when I checked the website
