    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 - Patriot Shell Cordovan Penny Loafers is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality control, tear, but good fit After owning several shell loafers, I was so happy to finally find the perfect loafer. I’m a healthcare worker and I’m on my feet all day, and it gives me (mostly) joy to wear these. I received seconds as a gift. First thing I noticed when wiping down the shoe with water: all the color wipes off. Literally all the brown was painted on? It’s a dull dark brown that appears almost black. The right vamp was stitched poorly with the hard leather protruding too far into the shoe, which makes my foot ache if I don’t walk a certain way. The worst part is the left shoe. I understand seconds are cosmetic issues, but the toe area on the front left side of the shoe actually has a tear in where the stitching meets the leather, possibly from too much pulling during the lasting process. I didn’t notice until recently and it’s really concerning. I’m watching carefully to see if it’s going to spread along the stitch line along the vamp. I really hope not. Cant exchange or return because already worn...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Handsome and well crafted I got these in all 3 colors; not being willing to pass up the bargain. They are best quality, but are one size narrower than Brannock Device. My 12-D foot goes in the 12-E perfectly, like wearing a most comfortable slipper. Overruns, likely; seconds? They were perfect! The brown pair is fantastic. The Shell shows this very well. As a physician, I do get nasty things on them. Shell Cordovan holds up to it better than anything. At 6' 2" and 300+ pounds, I Do put them to the test and they hold up so very well. This is a shoe that will last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They say they are a factory second, but it’s difficult to tell what didn’t pass muster as they are beautiful! I just received my pair of factory seconds and I can’t really find what’s wrong with them. They are beautiful! I found a little tiny spot where the Goodyear welt might have a little too many stitches, but in this case more is better. On the second shoe there’s a spot that is probably .5”x.5” where there is a very slight color issue, but it isn’t visible to the passing eye as I had to look very closely even to find it. No one else would ever see it. AE is still an excellent shoe, particularly on the shell cordovan models - everything is first class from the JR sole, the quality of the cordovan, the build quality is excellent, and finally the Quality Department (QA). For QA to even find these potential errors tells me that they are very interested in selling the best shell cordovan loafers in the USA. I just love them!
