    Haha, it's amazing right! Typically most guys get their true dress shoe size, but if you want to opt for a Crocodile or Gator pair and you live in the States, then I can send you try-on pairs to fit you at home. We're still coordinating how this program will work, but I've got a conduit to the leathers and my factory makes the best sneakers.. quality wise.. that I've seen.

    Thanks a lot! We've been doing shell cordovan and Stingray sneakers for about the past two years, and I've been working to develop a program for croc and gator. It's the same basic idea which each skin cut and sewn by hand, but sourcing the leathers and arranging the MTO process took a bit of work. My factory is great at it, but they've never done anything like this before.

    Gimme a few weeks and we should have the croc skins up. I usually do them in a one week window where customers can choose from a few different colors. That way the factory can order the skins in a batch from the leather house

    I actually have this pair and really enjoy them. I think someone mentioned that they would wear with linen pants and that’s exactly what I did!

    They are every bit of that but they are still not oxfords.

    "Oxford" also refers to a city in the south of England, a type of cloth, and, ironically enough, a dictionary of the English language. Perhaps your shoes are really one of those.

    Oxford shoes, on the other hand (we were talking about shoes, were we not?) are characterized by the facings lying under the vamp.

    What you have there are Derbies.

    If you don't believe a shoemaker look up "oxford shoes" on Wikipedia or simply see this webpage.
