I have a pair of Antonio Maurizi, picked them up from bluefly.

These are the funkiest pair of AE's I have ever seen. They are brand new and in my size too. What could I wear these with?

Those are awesome. Wear them with your sharkskin suit! Duh!

Obviously a special order that was not picked up or never worn... I wonder why

Who says AE only makes conservative shoes?

Is that photoshopped, or a (real) photo-op?

Wear while pimping at the bridge club.

Cap'n, those are some of the ugliest shoes I've ever seen--particularly the first pair you displayed. If you wear those on a stroll down Robson St., I guarantee you that someone will step all over them.

Those sharkskins are quite old. You can tell by the darker sole (AE soles from the last couple of decades are a natural leather color). Very cool score.

Sharkskin may not be to everyone's taste--but if you want a tough leather that is all but impervious to scuffs, scratches, gouges and general wear and tear, it's very hard to beat. I don't know anything better.

In training exercises I've had to roll on and crawl across sharp gravel wearing my sharskin holsters. A cowhide holster would have been irreparably marred, the sharkskin was unfazed.

Both at those shoes and him visiting AE.

Real. They're red, white and blue, presented to him when he visited Allen-Edmonds.
