    Black with brown highlights. The goyser stitching sold me!
    I didn't have black in my cordovan collection.

    Pretty neat! The raw edge coupled with the reflection of the shell had me thinking it was a navy or dark green shell. Good choice!

    I was thinking navy, too. Very awesome pair.

    Something a little different, Tanino Crisci cordovan PTB's with "boring solid color socks"
    These took a shine like a dream (without too much effort)

    ^ They are very nice PTBs, very nice indeed.

    I'm not even sure if Tanino Crisci is even making shoes anymore, as I think that I read some years back that they were shutting down.

    Wanted to share how resilient shell cordovans are. I don't know what these pair has been through but a bit of magic and they're back to previous beauty.

    Picked up these vintage Florsheim shells on ebay. Almost fell on my butt due to the v cleat. Will need to change the heel but am enjoying my first pair of shells!

    Outstanding work on these! [​IMG]

    I think they could do with some more slender laces, IMHO

    What is the shoe model number on the inside of your pair if I may ask? I have a pair I obtained from ebay as well, but the shell was really hammered and I'm trying to determine if it's aged shell or if I was taken for a ride.
