These are printed calf in my opinion.
I'm no expert but this is my opinion. The back of the shoe looks better than the front. If they were genuine reptile I think that would be stamped on the shoe.

The problem there is that Ralph rarely (I won't say never, just have never seen it) marked any reptile shoes as such.
Good information, and surprising to me. At least the 'no expert' part of my post is holding up.

Same is valid for Zilli shoes, no crocodile stamp.
The reason why I think it’s stamped is because of the calf alike creasing.
THE easiest thing is, get your nail under a scale, if you feel the scale it’s real if it’s to uniform it’s Stamp.

So what has been people's experience with shipping to freight forwarders in Portland?
99% positive. I've sold a lot of stuff to shop airlines, a large japanese resale & import company and only had 1 issue with them. They attempted to export a pair of sharkskin shoes that I sold to them to Japan. They had issues with exporting the item and asked me for documentation (which I did not, nor does anyone have, as the shoes were rare vintage Florsheims). Eventually they asked to return the shoes to me. You would think they would have enough expertise to understand what they can and cannot export.

Exotic Material is always a pain to Export.

Anyone experience with Promoted Listings Advanced BETA

For me, it looks like it makes more sense when you are in a field where there is a lot of competition and no real brand name is involved; e.g., Tablet Cover / Tablet Stand / Phone charger, etc., but with branded items that are individual like:
Not really does a Kiton Tie 1 look the same as Kiton Tie 2... I don't know if it makes sense, maybe it may make sense when there are a thousand articles in the Kiton tie category?

Anyhow, anyone's experience?

no, but since when is FB an intermediary? I thought they are a free platform like Craigslist.
Im not sure about there system. There’s a link to ask FB to step in, but I’m not sure how it works. I bought something (shipped) that was not as advertised, and the seller is being a ***** about it.
