    Oh, I did a few years back on rare occasions. It's not something I enjoy doing.

    Those are beautiful. Not sure alligator shoes get much better than that. Nice.

    Thanks

    I was hoping DWFII would see this thread and add his comments like before upstream in this thread. He has probably seen and worked with more than I could ever imagine.



    What stunned me about these were the condition after 45-50 years. Sharp rubber heels and the tiger stripes on the sole are easily seen. Worn very few times.



    Cost to duplicate today?? Anybody have a recent custom made pair to share in pictures and general pricing information?

    Nope, thats not an option, as I do like the brown esp the smaller scales on the sides of the brown shoe. This is a trial run, if i wear them then will pull up shirt sleeves and get some better ones...maybe.

    Regards.

    Shikar, I hope you're getting a fantastic deal on those. Mezlan skins kind of suck... you may be better waiting to sink it in something a bit better if these are more than $250. For example, VCH has a pair of croc Sutor Mantelassis that are really nice.
