Derby Boot Black Scotch Grain Shell Cordovan

This month's Shell Cordovan preorder has us revisiting a special version of the leather for the first time in nearly two years.  After sourcing a small batch of Black Scotch Grain Shell Cordovan from Horween we originally debuted the material on a Derby Shoe back in 2016.  As an evolution of that shoe, we are now offering our Derby Boot in the same custom printed leather.  The Scotch Grain pattern creates a distinct pebbled texture which contrasts with the naturally smooth surface of Shell Cordovan.  For the first time on this silhouette we've added a Fabric Pull Tab and used a combination of Brass Eyelets and Speedhooks.  Photographed beneath a dark blue sky at dusk, the mirror-like finish of the Shell almost glows.
