For Sale:
Gaziano and Girling (G&G) black pig skin wells. 8.5F. BNIB

Will Ship To: Anywhere

  • Price drop 725 --> 650 (5-20-2016)
  • took a sizing gamble and lost for G&G. Right foot is killing me just after a few minutes of wearing the shoe because of the instep. Width is fine. Figured to try recover the second payment on the shoes before I tried to stretch them and possibly ruin the shoes.
  • So if you ever wanted to try G&G pig skin and did not want to pay for the extra surcharge this your chance to try them for much cheaper.
  • Gaziano and Girling
  • UK 8.5F --> from my experience, just a touch "wide" but not really
  • GG06 last, HAF sole
  • Model is Wells Derby
  • Black Pig Skin (only color available as non bespoke). Feels and loks like a textured calf leather to me.
  • Black pig skin is 200USD extra surharge
    Brand new in box, comes with G&G box, and shoe bag. I did not get shoe trees from g&g for these
  • See pics for details. Shoes have not been worn other than to assess size.
  • 12 shipping in the USA (basically split shipping costs). PM for international shipping
  • No returns

I am not a leather expert but from what I have read pigskin is a nappier/more textured, usually softer leather. It is also thin and very durable. Overall I think it is also not as available as cowhide (even though I would not consider it rare or exotic by any means).

I think the biggest benefit is that the leather breathes very well  (apparently has many tiny pores) but is also tough and durable.

In this specific case i liked the way it looked so I took the chance....and I lost on the sizing not the pig skin which I still like

Maybe EG makes pig skin shoes
