    ^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?

    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.

    You may find these pretty cool. This is a picture from a tannery, mentioning George Cleverley being the recipient of the skins.
