    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.

    Bradley Shell Cordovan Dress Shoe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Bradley Shell Cordovan. this shoe really exceeded my expectation!!! this was not a FS but a clearance shoe with another 30% reduction, makes this shell corodvan shoe a steal. a very slight blemish but no one will notice but me. Too Bad they discontinued this model. this was my first time I purchased an AE shoe with this last (I have 12 pairs) but I was surprised how comfortable & how nice they fit (Size 14E). This is only my second shell cordovan shoe, the first was 2 yrs ago, a Dalton Boot which was a FS, again with only a slight blemish around the bottom of the tongue. Never thought I would be the proud owner of a couple of shell cordovan shoes, I am truly blessed!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just fantastic These shoes are just fantastic. They are beautiful, stylish, comfortable and they get a lot of complements. The style is on the casual side for a dress shoe but they still work well with both slacks or dark jeans. Shell is a bit stiffer than calf leather when it is new so be prepared to break them in. The weather has been nice so I've been walking a mile in them at lunch time then putting shoe trees in them. After the 4th day, the cork had molded to my foot, the shell had loosened up a bit and they were good to go. I love them and I'd gladly order them in alternate shell colors if I could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bradley Shell cordovan shoes are just beautiful. They will last a decade of heavy use which makes them economical. I have always wanted Shell Cordovan shoes but the expense inhibited me from doing so. I have now purchased 5 pair of Allen Edmonds shoes. I got a magazine from AE and it had a whole page of Shell Cordovan shoes. They were discounted and after drooling over the Bradley’s I pulled the trigger. 8weeks later they arrived. I was excited so I quickly opened the box and there they were my first Cordovan shoes. So perfect and beautiful. I quickly laced them and put them on and the fit was perfect. They were very easy to break in . I love them and plan on caring for them so they will last the rest of my life (I am 68). Even after wearing them for a 12 hour day my feet are fine. They are more comfortable than my casual sneakers. They fit perfectly and the Cordovan leather is soft. I couldn’t be happier with a pair of shoes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe I have a 10+ year old pair of Bradley’s. They were my first pair of AE. Without a doubt are still the most comfortable shoes I own. I wear a 13EEE so dress shoes are not always my friend. Mine are chili in color, which you cannot find anymore. If AE would make this shoe in a different color other than than cordovan again, I would be an owner. Mine have been re-crafted at least three or four times, not sure they would make it through another so will sadly have to retire them. It’s too bad because the uppers still look great. The bradley has been worth every dime. Highly recommend!

    Some Allen Edmond I wear 11 1/2. Others a 12. How about this one?

    Asked by: Drbruce
    the answer might be in the last that's used to construct your shoes. I'm an 11 in the Leeds due to its roomy last. for the Randolph, an 11 1/2 is a bit snug.

    Hand sewn vamp

    Is the vamp sewn on the last or before it is lasted? Is the effect of this stitching from joining two pieces of leather or is some other method used to create this look?
    Asked by: Shoe nut
    The moc stitch on the vamp is sewn on a form with 2 awls by hand. The two pieces are joined with thread and an awl. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
