    Im with you both. Recently snagged a pair of Gucci alligator belly loafers in cocoa that are incredible. I want a glossy black laceup for business next but I cant drop 3k on shoes.... yet.

    I have one pair of each which I wear sparingly. I get complements on these more than most of the shoes I own. Go figure.

    OK, so pretty unanimous so far. Favorite brands? Mezlan and Mauri arent doing it for me - want something a little better. Ideas?

    Are they neck skins or bellys? I had one pair of necks and the quality didnt cut it for my standards. After about 10 wears they split at the top seams (loafers).

    RL and BB have had some very nice croc and gator shoes over the years. Rider has had nice ones, too.

    Love. They allow some flash without being too ostentatious.

    Yes, sometimes they're amazing. Someone posted some beautiful vintage Allen Edmonds Croc balmorals here awhile ago. Wish I'd saved the pic.

    What size do you wear?

    Euro 42/42.5 or us 9/9.5. You have some to sell? I prefer/need belly skins only though.
