Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan: A Process That Never Cuts Corners

Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan- A Process That Never Cuts Corners WPS BLOG

There’s no mistaking a fine leather. You know it just by looking at it. Touch it, and you’re convinced. Smell it, and you’re hooked. Like art on a canvas, a beautiful pair of fine footwear doesn’t just happen. It takes a skilled craftsman, the best materials, and the most painstaking process.

Horween’s philosophy from the beginning is that you make it the best you can make it, and you price it accordingly. And if it’s really the best, people will buy it. That was four generations ago. And Horween is still the standard in Genuine Shell Cordovan.

Methods for Waterproofing Boots

Nothing is worse than working all day with wet shoes. So, when spending money on a brand new pair of boots, it is important to protect them by correctly waterproofing.

Why should you care about waterproofing your boots? It is quite simple. Boots range in price, but can be very expensive and your hard-earned money might as well be sent down the drain if you don’t take the time to take care for your new investment.
