    A little more than a year ago, I picked up these shoes new on eBay from a small/private seller. The seller said they were Cordovan but I had doubts (mostly because he was selling them so cheap, not Cordovan prices haha) but I went with it. When I got them they actually looked and smell like Cordovan and love the shape of the shoe and the fit was perfect So kept them.

    After a year or so of use , I have only use the deer-bone and renovateur but wanted to add some paste and always had doubts about the Cordovan claim (not that it matters any more) but figure I’ll ask opinions here. I see some small calf like creases that I do not see in any of my Cordovan shoes so figure this is calf. Any opinions?

    Looks like shell to me. You can it some lexol or Saphir dubbin in the crease point of the rolls if they’re starting to look dry.

    Enjoy!

    I use the saphir cordovan line for my shells when they need a touch up. It's a cream but the pigment is very concentrated so be conservative with the application. It's worked great for me and I recommend it. Enjoy the loafers, they look great.
