Product Description

Here is our new split toe norwegian penny loafer made in fine cherry shell cordovan.
Featuring a beautifully handsewn apron. Many hours are needed to produce a so delicate stitching, that just the master craftsmen can achieve, but it is trully worth the result!

This very limited Meermin Shell Cordovan shoes are made, using the Shell Cordovan handmade by a family owned tannery in the heart of Japan, following ancient methods. Full vegetable tanned made following a 10 month process where every shell is pit tanned, naturally air dried & glazed by hand in order to achieve its very transparent & characteristic finish. That is quite a long process, but the result its totally worth it!
Now for the production of our Shell cordovan shoes & boots, we even use French calf for the lining & 100% leather heel counters! To get an even better, more comfortable & long lasting shoe.

Shoes made with this beautiful leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time. Shoes with this precious leather will develop a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.

Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, these runs are extremely limited.
