For me, this is a perfect example of what SF's shoe porn thread is all about. For me, I don't like: 1) loafers, 2) tassles, or 3) suede.
However, there is NO mistaking that these are very beautiful shoes. Although not for me, I can certainly appreciate the aesthetic, as well as the work that goes into designing, then executing something like this.
Moo, my hat's off to the man who can rock some norvegese stefanobi monks on Monday, then come back with these on Tuesday. You are a man of varied tastes... all of them good, it seems.
