If I were ever to wear sharkskin shoes I think I would want them un-dyed "natural sharkskin." I have no idea what that would look like but I just don't think I'd feel right about choosing black or brown dyed sharkskin shoes.

Does this mean I respect sharks more than cows? I have eaten shark only a few times and my diet is probably 50% cow so make of that what you will
It'd be a mid to light brown. An undesirable color in my opinion, just like natural cxl and whiskey is typically out of box for me.
I think these Nassau are the right shade for shark. Pic credit to @davidVC of vcleat.com.

They only go outside on dry days.
And as much as it’s rained here, it has taken WAY longer than a month to accumulate that much time in the sun.
What is this... Rain...?

You are probably right - also odd that there are no widths listed.
There's no probably about it. That is not the correct site. Period.
These pop up from time to time; they are scams.

Help a fellow weasel out. Anybody order a gray suede MacNeil in the last trunk show? I'd love to see what that looks like. You know, for research purposes.

Heck, even if you ordered gray suede something else, I'd love to see in the wild pictures, too. Just having a hard time picturing the combo in my mind's eye.

Thanks!

Love,

Donkey
Not a MacNeil but it is gray suede.

Scammers are getting more and more sophisticated in their efforts to get financial info from consumers, everyone be careful out there!
Indeed.
Watch out for impossibly low prices. If they're well below cost, it's probably just a card skimming site.
Also, check the actual link address; there's probably something misspelled/added/missing.
Don't blindly follow ad links on Facebook, etc. Don't blindly follow links even from here. It doesn't take but a second to check the link address, and maybe even do a separate Google search to verify it's valid before proceeding through the link. It may seem paranoid, but protecting your identity/assests means having some caution.

Especially if they dropped all burnishing. I would really like a single shade that will patina over time.
+100. I hate burnishing.

The question I have right now is, can you mix Gator belt with lizard shoes? No spoiler as the belt and socks are AE.

Same color family. Perfectly acceptable. I blend calf/suede/shell/croc/gator all the time, but your knew that already
My mother always said, “would you wear gator and lizard just because @madhat does”? Or something like that.
