    I found three pairs of shoes in a local thrift store, all obviously from the same source -- a size 8.

    The first is a pair of burgundy crocodile leather David Eden monkstraps, which I bought for SF member Roy Biggins.

    The other two I held off on, uncertain of their desirability (I am primarily interested in these for potential sale, as I don't know what use I might have for them otherwise). One was a pair of Fratelli PSF green lizard skin loafers, the other was a pair of Davanzati laced shoes that have this sort of insane aquamarine suede/darker green crocodile...thing going on. They look a bit pimp-ish, but they're beautifully put together, or at least appeared to my relatively unrefined eye to be.

    Any opinions?

    There's something for everyone in the world. Isn't it wonderful?

    Maybe pimps use Ebay too, and then you can buy them and resell them on Ebay!

    Or maybe pimps have "Their Ladies" shop on Ebay for them.

    For more "cred" when selling them, use the Pimp Name Generator, it'll impress the playahs.

    The last two sound kind of tacky.
