No shortage of Caimans it seems
^Should I worry that I thought those must be Carminas before seeing the maker's card? Is there a thing such as ogling too many shoes?
When I first joined the forum I was like how are people able to figure the shoes out that fast and now I am at that level lol
These are not going to match up to many of the other extraordinary shoes posted in this thread, but I'll offer them up anyway. Crocodile vamp/tongue and calf quarters from Jack Peng Bespoke (Shanghai), now about three years old. Lasted to a mold of my feet, and extremely comfortable. Apologies for the average photography...
One of my aims was to create a somewhat "stealthy" shoe, thereby hopefully avoiding the pimp effect. I chose black for the same reason, plus I needed a pair of black shoes at the time. The style is not traditional, but does allow a decent amount of exotic hide to peep out from under a trouser break.
You've achieved stealth alright. People will think these are pimpin' cool Stacy Adams, while somewhere in the universe, the spirit of a once majestic beast death-rolls in its grave. On the upside, the sweeping vamp to the 3 eyelets soften the blow somewhat. I'd give these a pass if worn barefoot near mud, pond or puddle.
You should learn not to mix your metaphors. It dilutes the impact of the sarcasm.
Did you step on a nail or something?
I really like the multi-coloured dye wash on these ^
You may find these pretty cool. This is a picture from a tannery, mentioning George Cleverley being the recipient of the skins.
