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.

How unkind of you to say that about your Pops and his fellow SF tragics lol8[1].gif. Pops probably could have picked up some nice ones on eBay but London to a Brick he is not up for that. Isshi could have sold him some croc/gator with hides the like of which you will never see again.

Well, it seems most here understand that they are a bit "different" when it comes to their clothing attire. When my dad was still working and managed an office of more than 200 people I understood his need for the many suits, dress shirts, slacks, shoes, etc. He has a small antique dresser just for his socks! He hasn't needed any of this stuff since 2000 and yet he has so much clothes that he has filled an entire walk-in closet of his own, uses half of my sisters closet, 3/4 of my brothers closet, and half of my closet and soon to be all of it when I move back to UCSB. His "office" in the house is filled with two portable type wooden closets (they have a name but it escapes me) and 4 giant shelves he bought at Costco, all filled with his shoes! That is not normal, even for most people here!

As to the Edward Green crocs, he did get those on Ebay. It was one of those horrible pictures auctions and even with that the guy showed some serious damage. As a result, he got them for quite cheap, as I recall, and has used the low buying price to justify what I believe is an outrageous cost for repairs/re-crafting at Edward Green. Maybe he will prove me wrong when he gets them back?

He recently got these unbelievable genuine turtle shoes in my size that are the most insane exotics I have ever seen. I am trying to find a way to persuade him that I could really use the shoes at school. It is going to be a hard sell since I have been, periodically, critical of his "hobby" and turned down offers of other dress shoes that I thought were better sold to someone who would appreciate them. I am more of a casual shoe guy, but I do own one suit and these shoes would look great with jeans, too. So, if anyone has any ideas on how to make this happen in spite of my past it would be appreciated.

I've never seen these around before, not my cup of tea though, but I don't think they look too bad.

They were Buddy Holly's shoes in the late 50s:
