Well, I sold a brand new pair of black croc Weston classic loafers in February for about $500. Sounds like I should have held out for more.. (I doesn't surprise me that you did not see them however, they had a buy-it-now on them and they sold within 2hrs of the time I listed them.)
You should have told me Andrew. l'm pissed off.

I have decided to save money for a pair of E Greens, so I am not considering buying them, but I would like t know the consensus on these brown crocodile penny loafers.  Are they a good deal? http://www.bluefly.com/pages....497709#

Bic-- I don't know what kind of a deal they are, but they look scrumptious. They remind me of the day, long, long ago, when I was paired at La Costa with a guy wearing kiltied alligator golf shoes and--get this.--a matching golf bag, complete with club covers.  (He told me he'd won it in a tournament at Ocho Rios.) So, you see, the varieties of human folly are truly endless. Mike

The vamp is really low on that shoe. I don't know if you're going for that look.

There is a very funny passage in the book "Pit Bull" by Buzzy Schwartz about crocodile shoes. He is working on Wall Street as a Security Analyst who is supposed to meet/grill the CEO of a company. The CEO is wearing Crocodile shoes and all Buzzy can think of is how beautiful the shoes are.... He forgets to grill the CEO. He makes fun of himself for being so influenced. Later when Buzzy becomes a World Champion Trader he gets a pair of the shoes as a symbol of success. I regret I don't have a copy of the book around to give a better favor of the passage as I am sure my narrative lacks. But it did make me laugh thinking about it. I do have a pair of gator shoes and they make me think of the movie "Romancing the Stone" where the gator or crock that eats the stone is made into boots. I wear my shoes to the club for brunch mostly just to remind members that I didn't blow all my $ during the bubble. My shoes aren't particularly durable.

You may say the croc shoes repell the girls but l'll tell ya what; the girls have always commented on my black snakeskin boots. Everyone loves them. P.S: all this non-sense about croc is just that, non-sense. Stop putting croc down, it rules. Croc is for legends. Regards: shooman.

(kabert @ 19 Aug. 2004, 06:45) -- a few months ago, someone was selling on EBay two pairs of Weston shoes (one loafer, one laceup IIRC) in brown crocodile. Though I'm sure the shoes were well over $1000 new, I think they ended up going for about $200 or $250 each.
The facts are that the last pair of Weston crocodile loafers on Ebay were sold last year for $1,100 to a japanese buyer. they were in near mint condition. The alligator 180 Weston price is $2,400 and only available by order as per Wegna, sales manager at Weston NY as 1 hour ago by phone. The facts are that the last brand New 180 that were sold on Ebay were on an original Weston black box calf with rubber size 9 1/2 E and sold for $275 in June. 2 new perry loafers were passed on 8/16 at $195 each.
