    Oh no, they were VERY cool.

    I love exotic skins but that is too much for my liking.

    Oh yes, the patina. Allow me to point it out to you with the power of photoshop.

    Even from the limited perspective of a noob, I would say Those can be styled. They're single pointed, and a power play, but pick the outfit, the occasion, the play, You go, boy! P

    £20 is not too bad. I'm sure others have done worse.

    That said, the only time I will be pimping those is if the snake had attacked me so I can make an example out of it and have a cool story to tell.

    That reminds me, when I was 18 I went longlining in the Barents sea for the summer holidays. Two days into what would be a seven week stint a large wolf-fish ripped a huge chunk off my steel toe wellingtons. After the initial shock (those fish got TEETH) I stamped it to death, filetet it, and brought it home with me. It was delicious.

    Yes, one of those. I was terrified.

    True story.

    I am certain that with a little experimentation you could pull them off. Get everything else right and you will look like an eccentric adventurer.

    PM Hermes Man these are Hermes and Justin Bieber wears them, then sell it to him.

    The one that bit me was leopard-spotted, and I've seen shoes made from similar fish skin. Stuff from the 1800s. Not pretty, but very hard-wearing.
