    Care Instructions

    Cordovan leather requires different care than calfskin due to its unique properties. Brush and wipe regularly and apply cream occasionally to protect the leather and maintain its rich color.

    Regular Maintenance:

    Regularly, brush the leather with our Horsehair Shine Brush or wipe with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth.

    To Protect and Restore Color, Follow These Steps:

    STEP 1: Wipe your shoe down with a damp cloth and allow to dry.

    STEP 2: Using your Horsehair Dauber, apply a small amount of Cordovan cream in a circular motion.

    STEP 3: While the cream is still slightly wet, take our Horsehair Shine Brush and brush back and forth, heating the cream and leather. This allows the natural oils to move to the surface to bring out the leather's natural shine.

    STEP 4: Next, use the soft side of our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to buff the shoe until the surface is no longer tacky. Often, some excess cream will transfer onto the cloth, which is normal.

    STEP 5: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heel and sole.


    Classic Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Factory 2nd - Leeds Shell Cordovan Derby Shoes is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control, Factory 3rd? Poor leather condition. Too many scratches.(It's ok because it's F2) The leather surface on the back of the shoe is rough. The raw material itself may be bad. The worst thing is the shape of both shoes is completely different on back. The height of the inside of the shoe differs by almost 1cm when viewed from behind. It is a level of shoes that is not thought to have been made by skilled workers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Allen Edmonds Seconds. Odered the leeds shell cordovan in burgundy. Upon Receiving and inspection i saw some flaws. Nothing major. After using some Saphir shoe cream and a bit of edge dressing they really look great. And with the flash sale price it was a great bargain. I took a chance buying a "second" . Glad i did !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price on Shell Cordovan This is my 3rd Factory Second pair of Allen Edmonds. The flaws on this pair of Shell Cordovan were pretty minimal -- just a few small dents in the leather that will be unnoticeable after a few months of wear. There was a bit of stitching that was sticking out somewhat, but I was able to easily clip this with a pair of sharp hair cutting scissors.I bought this pair on sale for $325, which is a steal for Shell Cordovan. These are really nice shoes that can be worn in the most formal situations. I wore these to court for a jury trial, and the shoes compliment a nice suit very well. The shoes were true to size, and were very comfortable. The leather felt very soft on the foot. I anticipate these will be great shoes for many years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Received my FACTORY 2ND LEEDS CORDOVAN today. The price was reasonable so I decided to give it a try. Overall I am happy with the purchase. The only things that I was able to find on the shoes were couple of very minor scratches and a small crease where the toes bend, but not warred about this since they will be like it after 30 min of wearing them. I was a little skeptical initially after reading some reviews, but I guess I got lucky.

    I have a pair of Leeds Cordovan in Burgundy.

    I've used the Allen Edmonds Cordovan Shoe cream a few times; in an attempt to get a higher shine I applied a second thin layer then a few light drops of water. Big mistake. The water appeared to soak through the already buffed surface and i quicky had to blot up the water, buff the shoes then applied a thin layer of Kiwi Cordovan wax...it helped but I am concerned about caring for these properly. Do you have any suggestions? I also have noticed strong variations in the level of color on the side walls of these shoes....they are very comfortable...but I have paid much less for burgundy calfskin and it seems to have a even level of color saturation. Is the variation one of the Factory Second defects?
