The Burgol Cordovan Cream Polish

Burgol Cordovanpomade

Shell Cordovan Leather

Shell Cordovan, also simply called horse leather, has very special properties. In addition to the very dense structure and the very special gloss, it is strongly oiled during manufacture. Shell Cordovan therefore needs care products adapted to these special properties.

The shoe polish for horse leather

Burgol's Cordovan Cream Polish is ideal for all shoes, bags, iPad cases, wallets and belts made of Shell Cordovan leather.

The colours have been matched to the well-known manufacturers using Horween's Shell-Cordovan, such as Heinrich Dinkelacker,, Ludwig Reiter, Altwien, Carmina, Alden, Allen Edmonds and Trickers and Shoepassion.

Cordovan is a very high quality and rare leather made from horse leather. Only a small part of the horsehide can be processed into real Cordovan, namely the croup area. These are two shell-shaped leather parts which have the shape of a shell. The English translation of „Muschel“ is shell, hence the name Shell-Cordovan. Only 1.5 pairs of shoes can be made from these shells.

Take up a little Cordovan Cream Polish with the Burgol Jar Brush or a cotton cloth and massage it evenly into the leather. After approx. 10 to 15 minutes, the leather can then be polished out with a horse hair brush. You get even more shine with a Fine Polishing Brush (goat or yak hair) after the horsehair brush. Scratches in the upper leather are best removed with a Shoe Bone or Polishing Bone or Deer Bone.
