Since releasing our first Shell Cordovan Chelsea nearly one year ago we have been steadily refining and adjusting the pattern to better accommodate this rare material. This updated version has a classic two-piece upper and backstay which provides us with a higher yield during the cutting process and allows us to offer the Chelsea in a greater variety of unique colours and treatments. This release is also the first time we have produced a boot with a 360 Storm Welt. We've managed to combine the added weather proofing of the 360 Welting process with the traditional Channelled Insole construction and Leather Heel Counter that have become hallmarks of our product. Finally we have increased the overall height of the pattern by more than an inch for increased coverage and placed fabric pull tabs at the front and rear for easy entry. The Ridgeway sole provides traction in all conditions, but maintains a sleek profile. While Shell Cordovan has become known as a dress leather in recent years, it's an incredibly durable material that can take a beating and be easily restored to it's original condition. This unique combination of materials and details makes the Shell Cordovan Chelsea the perfect footwear solution for those going from the city to the countryside or anywhere in between.
