I kinda like these ostrich loafers, though I'd really prefer a slightly darker color. This is a serious question: Who would it look like I shopped at Pimps R Us if I wore these?
The seller is a long-standing Style Forum member. One of his specialties (depicted in several threads) is refinishing shoes to a very high standard.
Use the eBay "Ask seller a question" link to inquire about giving the shoes a darker finish. I can't speak for him. But the shoes, the materials, and the requisite skills are all in the same place at the same time. It couldn't be much better than that.
I suppose it would help if you were the auction winner!
