What material are these AE's?

The ad says these are made of leather but I've never seen any leather that looks like the cow was boiled alive in a cauldron of Canola. What the heck is this stuff?

I've long heard stories of the mad scientists at Allen Edmonds and their pursuit to create the Ostrich-a-gator.

Where is your God now?

I've seen a couple pairs of Elephant skin shoes, and these don't resemble them. Sharkskin looks like it might be right though...

Call them and ask about the numbers on the inside.

They look like sharkskin to me. IMO, like most sharkskin shoes, they are pretty ugly.

It's an embossed leather. In other words --the leather is treated and run thru an embossing roller ( like say stamped ).

Not a chance. Yeah, it's sharkskin. AE used to make shoes out of all kinds of exotic materials. Here's another pair: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25215502@N02/3378082060/
