  • Is each Shell Cordovan Wallet unique?
    Horween Leather's Shell Cordovan is an extremely durable leather processed by hand in Chicago, USA. The natural dyeing and finishing process results in a beautiful leather with deep colors. Each wallet's color, and the Horween Leather stamps on the wallet's interior, will be unique to the piece of Shell Cordovan used.
  • Will the leather change over time?
    Shell Cordovan is an extremely resilient leather that develops a beautiful patina with time. If desired, the mirror-like luster can be brought back over and over with careful polishing. The extremely dense fiber structure of Shell Cordovan means it does not crease or crack like other leather.
  • What makes Shell Cordovan Special?
    This leather is produced by only a few tanneries in the world, following a process pioneered by Horween in 1905. Steeped in vegetable liquors then dyed, glazed and polished by hand, Shell Cordovan leather takes over six months to tan.

This is a whole new level beyond previous Nomad wallets. The photos on the site don't give it justice. It looks and feels exceptionally high-end while still retaining Nomad's minimalism. Get one before they sell out. A note on color: both colors are the most traditional shell cordovan colors; of the two the black is more conservative, while the color 8 is still dark (very far from the brown wallets you may be used to) but has a reddish hue to it that is characteristic of shell cordovan. I prefer the color 8.

A really good wallet!

The wallet itself is built extremely well. It is utilitarian and the color of the leather shines.

I have been using this wallet for over a month now and the leather has developed a layer of luster which was missing on unboxing it.

Would recommend this wallet to anyone who’s looking for a premium leather wallet.
