Product Description

Introducing our newest addition to the Shell Cordovan line up, the classic PTB in our very own Waxed Shell Cordovan. Goodyear Welted on the HOK last & finished with a robust double City lug outsole. Fitted with leather heel counters, insoles & midsoles, this PTB is a true workhorse that will only look better & better with each wear.

Shell cordovan is a very unique leather made from the fibrous flat muscle (shell) beneath the hide of a horse. It is renowned for its durability, suppleness, and unique patina that develops with wear.

The Waxy Shell cordovan is something new & unique to Meermin, something we develpoed from scratch & very different from the traditional Shell Cordovan. For this singular development, shells go through a straight vegetable tan with a newly developed formula of liquors, oils and waxes resulting in an extremely pliable, soft and casual Shell Cordovan, while retaining all the shell fiber density and structure. With an unglazed and heavily waxy surface—ready for an aggressive patina from day one. Something really unique and unseen before.

For this exclusive development we've been working exclusively with American shells—tanned by traditional vegetable tanning expert & family owned tannery, to develop this article exclusively made for Meermin.

Overall, this pair of Shell PTBs offer unparalled value, durability and style that will last for years to come. They are an excellent investment for anyone looking for a timeless, casual and classic shoe that will stand the test of time.
