Why? All kind of "PIMP". Takes the right attitude to pull off the correct one.

^ You got it bro.

 

Prove me wrong with someone looking OK with that kind of croco pink shoes. Are they cool, sure they are. Would I use them? Hell no.

As a bit of an aside, it has always amused me how Croc/Gator has been viewed in certain social circles and age groups. The following is not some historical research but simply my own views. My parents and their friends ( WWII generation, conservative ) often referred to slippery characters, car salesman or shady businessmen as "An Alligator show wearing type" (They also said the same thing about "suede shoe wearing type") . Good luck getting a loan at a bank in the 70's wearing croc shoes to meet the loan officer. In the 70's if you wore croc or gator you risked being called "pimp" by everyone at any age (and, you probably were). Then the 80's power look hit with movies like Wall Street and guys were looking for alpha male accessories to pair with their double breasted suits. I began to see more croc/gator tassel loafers and oxfords at regular places like ColeHaan and on entrepreneurs. But by the 90's after croc/gator became endangered it wasn't cool to wear. It would be like wearing seal fur. Now, with farming, etc., no one cares

Some apt observations there. Up until recently in Australia reptile was the preserve of flash types, spivs etc.

Re you USA observations triggered the memory banks back to 1992 when I recall watching CNN and hearing Ross Perot (ironically a billionaire from Government contracts) put down the "Beltway" with some line about their dress sense:

On change in Washington: "All these fellows with thousand-dollar suits and alligator shoes running up and down the halls of Congress that make policy now - the lobbyists, the PAC guys, the foreign lobbyists, and what have you - they'll be over at the Smithsonian, because we're going to get rid of them."

I laughed at the time and it needs to be restated.
