Cordovan Care With Famaco Paste

Famaco’s cordovan paste was specially designed for use on cordovan leather. This type of leather is made from the horse’s rear hide; a single horse yields two small oval pieces, each measuring approximately 30cm in diameter. This amount is only sufficient for one or two pairs of shoes. It’s no wonder, then, that cordovan shoes are much more expensive than, say, calfskin shoes. Cordovan shoes boast high durability and are generally considered an ideal shoe material. Cordovan features a high fat content, which makes for high water resistance.

Sturdy Leather, Simple Care: Cordovan Leather

As a result of cordovan leather’s naturally high fat content as well as oil care used during the tanning process, white fat deposits may appear on the shoe surface. This residue is unsightly but harmless; it’s easy to remove with a cotton cloth. Thanks to cordovan’s high durability, damages to the upper, such as scratches and worn patches, are easy to treat with a polishing brush. However, even with regular care, minor wrinkling due to walking is inevitable.

Cordovan Care: Apply, Let Dry And Polish

Famaco cordovan paste cleans, treats and protects your cordovan leather shoes. It’s easy to use, too. First, brush away any dirt or dust from your shoes. Because of its aforementioned high fat content, dirt particles are liable to cling to this kind of leather. Once you’ve finished brushing, massage the paste into the leather with an applicator brush or a cotton cloth, using circular movements. For shoes with broguing we recommend using a brush that’s able to reach into the perforations. Apply the paste as evenly as possible and let dry. The last step is polishing; use a polishing brush to rub in the cream.
