    Anyone have Peron & Peron bespoke?


    they make quite a beautiful shoe.

    I have seen their RTW examples online; yes they look quite wonderful, a cross between Santoni and Branchini in desgin.

    what ever you mean by that!? of these two, i prefer ugolini by far.

    imo, the g&g last has a very comical character.

    Have to say i agree with Fritzl on this, that G&G just looks like a posh square toed winkle picker. G&G make some wonderful shoes but that isnt one of them.

    I love the last on those stingrays. Edgy and elegant at the same time.

    You ALWAYS have different lacing options... as long as you've got $3 in your pocket.

    Are you supposed to polish stingray? It seems like it would be difficult...

    After contacting many exotic Cowboy Boot aficionados, I foundthe consensus was that Bick-4 is the best Exotics conditioner/ polish available. It is colorless & does not darken. I've used it on Crocs, gators, lizards, snakes, and the like. Works very well, as it leaves no discerning residue & allows the natural colors of the skin to shine.

    I know Saphir has an exotic polish/conditioner.
