Just a heads up. I didn't mean to sound like I was lecturing. BTW, I'm 61.

Crocodile Edward Green. Nice. Very nice...but the fuzzy picture may be hiding cracked skin.

Regards.

My dad has been waiting a long time now for a pair of crocodile Edward Green shoes he sent for re-crafting and "other" work to be returned. They promised them 2 months ago so they are way overdue. There won't be any "fuzzy" photos when he lists his!!

despite crap pics, the skin looks to be intact. Doesn't look to have overall dryness, so if there is a crack, it is most likely from a gouge.

When Croc is cracked, it is cracked. There are all sorts of things that can be done to minimize the damage (depending on severity), but a skin that has dried too much will not come back properly. However, I'm sure your Dad picked an exquisite pair in thew first place. Good taste and good eye.

The rear quarter of his was damaged so Edward Green agreed to find a new piece of crocodile that matched up and they replaced the entire rear quarter of both shoes. Finding the right piece of exotic leather was a painstaking task, to listen to him complain about it. Other than that, the uppers were perfect, so no cracking, dryness, scratches, dents, or other undesirable attributes. They are also doing some special sole treatments that he requested. I think he also asked for lasted trees for them, which they agreed to provide, at a cost, of course. He will kill me if he ever sees this post, but I believe he paid over $1500 for the work he is having done! They are going to be amazing, but alas, Edward Green must have gotten real busy with the Olympics or something because they promised him they would be returned at the beginning of June and here we are in mid-August with no shoes. I go back to Santa Barbara in September and was hoping to see them in person before I left! On a side note, one of the main reasons I came to this site way back when was to see if there were actually other people as insane as my pops when it comes to this stuff. I have concluded that he is definitely not alone and at least can claim that misery has found company, at Style Forum.
