For those who are unfamiliar or curious why these boots are roughly $400 more than our other styles - Shell Cordovan is the Rolex of leathers. Shell comes from the inside hind legs of a horse, and it is known for its tight grain and mirror-like shine. This particular shell is from a tannery that ONLY tans horse leather - Conceria Cloe in Pisa, Italy. For perspective, one shell (piece) costs upwards of $200 and it takes at least two per pair of boots, plus labor and other materials. Therefore, these are not cheap but as you can see, we are being conservative with the price so that we can get this exceptional style to you at the best value possible.
