    How unkind of you to say that about your Pops and his fellow SF tragics :lol:. Pops probably could have picked up some nice ones on eBay but London to a Brick he is not up for that. Isshi could have sold him some croc/gator with hides the like of which you will never see again.

    Well, it seems most here understand that they are a bit "different" when it comes to their clothing attire. When my dad was still working and managed an office of more than 200 people I understood his need for the many suits, dress shirts, slacks, shoes, etc. He has a small antique dresser just for his socks! He hasn't needed any of this stuff since 2000 and yet he has so much clothes that he has filled an entire walk-in closet of his own, uses half of my sisters closet, 3/4 of my brothers closet, and half of my closet and soon to be all of it when I move back to UCSB. His "office" in the house is filled with two portable type wooden closets (they have a name but it escapes me) and 4 giant shelves he bought at Costco, all filled with his shoes! That is not normal, even for most people here!

    As to the Edward Green crocs, he did get those on Ebay. It was one of those horrible pictures auctions and even with that the guy showed some serious damage. As a result, he got them for quite cheap, as I recall, and has used the low buying price to justify what I believe is an outrageous cost for repairs/re-crafting at Edward Green. Maybe he will prove me wrong when he gets them back?

    He recently got these unbelievable genuine turtle shoes in my size that are the most insane exotics I have ever seen. I am trying to find a way to persuade him that I could really use the shoes at school. It is going to be a hard sell since I have been, periodically, critical of his "hobby" and turned down offers of other dress shoes that I thought were better sold to someone who would appreciate them. I am more of a casual shoe guy, but I do own one suit and these shoes would look great with jeans, too. So, if anyone has any ideas on how to make this happen in spite of my past it would be appreciated.

    I've never seen these around before, not my cup of tea though, but I don't think they look too bad.

    They were Buddy Holly's shoes in the late 50s:

    ^sizing seems a bit odd, eur 43 should be UK 9 and US 10. I wonder what size is actually marked on the shoe.

    I know - odd - the shoe is marked a 9, you can see it in the 3rd pic. Proportions look right for a 43 though.
