Although some bad pictures were viewed here a few weeks ago, I thought I would share some new pictures of the Belmont in shark skin. The Belmont is a split toe blucher on the 8 last and can be found in the 2002 AE catalog in black and brown. The leather has a medium stiffness and the shoes have a double oak sole. Yes, the leather is as textured as it appears in the pictures. The sole, plus the "tough as nails" reputation of shark, indicate these shoes will last a very long time. They are definitely a statement shoe that I plan to wear with nice slacks and a sport coat. Discuss.
In the words of Bo Jackson on the AT&T commercials - that's a strong shoe.
