Made nice footwear in the 60s. Maybe before then? We would ride up to Chicago in the late 60s and buy their lizard shoes from Chernin's for $30. That was a lot of money for 18 and 19 year old young men. Doing that time, most high end shoes (Bally, J&M, Nettleton etc.) cost $30 to $35. Nettleton alligator shoes were only $75.

I remember old Roosevelt Rd! Chernin's for shoes and then over to Manny's for some deli.

Back in the day there were many a time that I found myself at the order counter at Jim's in the wee hours trying to decide between a polish and a pork chop sandwich (smothered in grilled onions), before finally getting both. shog[1].gif

Jeez, what a circus that joint was at 4am.

Yup, not bad considering most of these tend to end up looking like monstrosities. A bit pricey though.

Picked up my first pair of exotic skin shoes, gently pre-owned.  This Bally model is made in Italy, and has 'Crocco' stamped in gold on the footbed.  I'll leave the scale pattern and quality of skin used up to the forum's opinion, but I thought for well under $100, I may enjoy a little bit of luxury on my feet. 

 

Cheers!

Interesting how many panels they incorporated and managed to cloak with that tight stitching and hiding the seams between the scales. Enjoy!

Looks good. Can't complain for the price. I've not seen Bally using exotics before, but then I wasn't really looking.

They did exotics back in the day. Now days they make some nice exotics under the Bally Scribe label.
