    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.


    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding finish. The shell cordovan boots were ready today. The attention to details from the " makers " are very good. Fit and finish leave no doubt of the cosistant outstanding work from Allen Edmonds. Anyone who is interested in good shoes, should walk into an Allen Edmonds shop and ask for advice. Thank you to the team.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Miserable quality Absolutely miserable quality control. I've received 4 pairs so far and they're all awful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higgins Mill Shell Cordovan Chilli - Absolutely Beautiful I had purchased AE shell cordovan shoes twice in 2019 and had to return them because of QC issues. I was reluctant to try one more time but, took a chance in 2020 and purchased the Higgins Mill Chilli. I received the boots recently and this time I am extremely happy/satisfied, no QC issues. The cordovan boots in chilli is drop dead gorgeous and it is comfortable as well. Thanks AE team for taking care of the QC issues and I really hope you guys maintain your quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the Allen Edmonds i know Purchased the Higgins Mill in Burgundy and i couldn't be happier, the stitching and the Cordovan color are uniform and it wasn't that's the beauty of shell cordovan, and of course the fit is spot on. As i'm writing this i see that this boot is now available in Black which will also purchase.

    Is the Higgins Mill's 100% Shell Cordovan on the visible upper?

    The title states " 'with' Shell Cordovan Leather". Does that indicate that AE has used other leathers in the construction of the upper in addition to Shell Cordovan or is the upper 100% Shell?
    Asked by: Raab75
    Yes, the leather upper is Cordovan.

    Can I wear my orthotics without making them too tight across the arch?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    I have an exceptionally high arch (which makes many boots uncomfortable). However, my HMs are comfortable through the arch because they are lace boots and allow me to control the tightness. I think you would find the same when you add the orthotic.

    Picture accuracy

    Sometimes with the new website the pictures don't always match the written description of the features that follows so I wanted to confirm the following. The Burgundy includes a black welt/edge, while the brown includes the contrasting "blonde" welt/edge present on the standard CXL HMs, and both include double danite as the outsole as opposed to double JR. Thanks very much for this clarification.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I ordered the brown model and it has a dark brown welt and not the natural welt pictured. I thought about returning it for this reason but I actually rather like the look for dressier occasions so I decided to keep the pair.
