Excellent question, Grimslade. I hadn't read the description when I posted them. They seem to be saying--although my translation skills are very limited--"putty/dead leaf patina." I suppose it's possible that these C&Js were given to one of the many Parisian patinateurs for antiquing, but, if so, something went terribly wrong or the owner had weird ideas about shoe appearance. When I saw them, they looked to me as though they either had dried cement all over them or had had the leather stain completely removed in places, perhaps by accident, by acid or some other chemical. Now that I look at them more closely, it's definitely not dried cement, and it looks very much like a botched patinating job.

Those were beautiful. Is there a model name for those Tramezzas?

Those look nice but I don't understand the point of those four little dots that break up the faux seam

Ok, so there is some disagreement as to whether or not AE's are special enough for this thread. What about bright red shell cordovan AE's?

10.5EE's:





Edit...looks like despite the use of the soles that say 'shell cordovan', these are not shell. Nor are these beauties (same size)..



or these...



There is also a brown textured leather pair and olive suede pair if you happen to be a 10.5EE and find this model appealing but the colors a little to much for your tastes...

I think these are great

and likely all made for the same person but I don't believe they are shell despite the full leather sole and markings.

Of the 5 pair that they had posted I liked these the most. Even the suede shoes used the shell soles and heels, so I trust AE's listings here when they say grain or calf leather.

Christ, you weren't kidding about "large feet". I think that's Bob Lanier's size.

Yup. I have them in brown suede and they're my favorite shoes. I wish I could find a pair in calf but they seem rare.

I wonder of these size 17s were a store return?

Surely they weren't samples, though to Bob Lanier and NBA players, a size 17 would be an average size. If my memory serves, I think Lanier had the biggest feet in the NBA when he played. Something like a size 22 or 24!

If Ron reads this. How, may I ask, did you aquire a size 17 to sell?
