What is generally the cost of ordering stingray? I know it isn't super popular as far as exotics go so I don't often hear much about it.

Typically they will breeze thru.

I must say these are really excellent shoes, having not handled anything even remotely close to how beautiful these things are. Thanks once again to the great folks at SkoaB, and Gabriel in particular. 
There is a problem though, I can't bear to wear them.

Thanks Gentlemen,

 

Yes, I have often wondered if there was indeed something wrong...I was going to call them today and then after a week there was an update on the tracking number this morning...

 

They supposedly went through Oak Creek WI, which is about an hour from me...I seriously would have drove up there to pick them up if they had stayed there...the tracking said they were only there about an hour...

 

I thought for sure they would be here today to no avail...

^ The detour to Charleston is what screwed it up. I once shipped Priority Mail to Oregon and it went through Hawaii :facepalm:. Gotta love the postal service.

I know.

 

I look askance at every crease in the leather and haven't mustered the courage to look at the once pristine soles after wearing StC the first time.  When I read on the G&G website that people buy Decos just to put them in a closet and admire, I guffawed.  Now I get it. Kind of.  I still could not resist wearing such fantastic shoes.

EDIT - posted wrong shoes before

 

Those are amazing shoes, and I love seeing them in the wild.

 

I eyed some blue Stingray G&G for quite some time.  I could not quite see how to pull them off.  Now I see how it is done.  Well done, sir.

post #14907 of 23712
Anyone have a pair of decos and a pair of StC? Would love to hear how they compare.

Alas, shoes (even very nice ones), are meant to be worn. I'm sure this pair will serve me well.

Good News: My boots arrived in my city this morning, I am foregoing the postman and picking them up directly from the post office as to ensure no further foul ups from them.

Thanks.

The attached letter apologies for finding the materials "loose in the mail or damaged by mechanical processing equipment."

At least the shoes made it in one piece, well two really.

I had that happen too recently.
Got my shoes no problem and then almost a month later received an envelope with the external paperwork. No attached letter or anything.
