Product Description

Introducing something you've never seen before. After months of research, here is the Museum Shell Cordovan produced by the Italian Tannery Rocado exclusively for Meermin.

These Shells are made using the exact same Shell Cordovan as our regular Shell Cordovan from Rocado Tannery (Italy)—This leather has a beautiful & deep marbled look exclusively achieved by a genuine “tamponatto a mano” finishing. With the variations of the dark and light aniline dyes it creates a stunning dimension to our shoes. This shells are their top grade, fully vegetable tanned and do have a very nice balance between supple and firm. It's beautiful smooth finish coupled with soft yet firm feel makes it a superb choice for the shoemaking.

For the first run we've selected our classic penny loafer, a very solid & versatile choice, goodyear welted on our RON last featuring a round toe & a slim shape. The apron is 100% handsewn.

Made just using the unique Museum Shell Cordovan & finished with a close channel single leather soles. A beautiful full grain calf lining & thick vegetable tanned leather insoles conform the interior. This classic pair of loafers are Goodyear Welted following traditional techniques by very skillful artisans. Our shoes are made to last & to just get better looking & more confortable over the time.

A truly interesting & striking make up, not to be missed.

    This unique material is the result of a coillaboration with our friends over at the Italian Tannery Rocado. We've been looking for a long time to develop this project and we've finally been able to get the result we were after.

    Exclusively made for us—This Shell Cordovan is something unlike anything you've seen before, it's deepness and intensity in color are so unique an beatiful, at the same time the handmade tamponato finish makes every single pair truly unique on its own.
