    Holy balls!!! Those Pythons turned out great. I still remember thinking "What the hell do I need snake shoes for?" Now I know... Now I know...

    ^what they said. Those pythons are extraordinary. Can't wait for a few of those who picked them up to post photos in action.

    I'm definitely wearing my pythons to the office, with purple trousers.

    You and me both. Still patiently waiting for the navy shell double monks to come in.

    I should have bought the pythons and am kicking myself for not doing so. Mike said they could do a special order though.

    Ruby shells look great.... but


    ... this is the birth of an all-new aesthetic - "African street pimp business casual" - perfect for striking fear into those who may steal your Lean Pockets from the office freezer.

    Fuck, how can I get a pair of both of those shoes

    Kicking myself for not being in on this, I have a poor ability to visualize what these MTOs will end up looking like while they are in the planning stages

    Honestly, if you think you might like one of these MTOs, I'd always jump on it. Because they're limited, you'll always find folks just lke yourself, who wish they jumped on it. So, in the rare case it doesn't trun out as you'd like, I'm sure you'd find a buyer very quickly.

    This nearly made me spit coffee out onto my screen!

    African street pimp business casual is perfect.


    You know what, I'm just going to set up a new run of these. Let's take orders from now until Christmas and try to re-up for Spring. Should be a little quicker this time around - especially as I now have an official license to import fish and wildlife into the United States (don't ask).

    I really can't believe how cool these came out. I'm used to seeing similar variants on the same shoes all of the time, and these step outside of the norm in such a perfect way. Great shape, thick tough sole, and a ton of attitude. You would wear these with a navy suit and look sharp as hell. They'll look boss with jeans. Carmina's really the only truly high-end manufacturer capable of making an exotic skin to this level, and it's exciting to make this product up. I'm sure as hell ordering myself a pair in round 2!

    Classic.

    Not sure if I am going to be able to resist python austerity brogue round two.

    And wj4 does take most of his excellent fit pics on the street these days.
