Shell Cordovan Cost
Shell cordovan leather is a very expensive material due to the rarity and quality of its production. A pair of shell cordovan shoes will often sell for between $400 and $500. The leather is tanned by hand over a period of six months. Clearly, a great deal of human labor goes into producing a small amount of this luxurious leather and, so, to account for the work, the price is high. Auction and classified websites typically offer reduced prices on shell cordovan products - some used some resale, some factory direct, etc.
