    nutcracker, these will be the toast of any nightclub. Just remember to lift your feet of the table when the bouncers pass you.

    And why would you? I dream of a stingray wholecut! Where them wherever the hell you like, man!

    Yes, the idea of a louche dinner suit arrangement is very entertaining. Make a few monocles fall out at the opera. But I think also you could wear these with pretty much anything casual. As a man who wears a velvet sports jacket as day to day scruffy wear, I could see these fitting into all sorts of scenarios.

    You have had the nuts (no pun intended) to buy a truly awesome pair of shoes beyond the imagination of 99.9% of people (i.e. everyone who's not here). So get out and inflict them on the world as much as possible, I say.

    Good to be assured that stingray skins are naturally water resistant


    Or else I`d be spending all night picking up the beads :lol:


    thanks. Yeah, was thinking more as a cool alternative to patent shoes for formal parties? (like I ever attend one.... :lol:)

    Yeah, I guess that is the attitude I need :lol: Considering how Stingray skin can last for 100yrs or more, I know the shoes could wait for my other nut to drop

    Even if they are extremely cool a shoe like this is quite far down on my "to buy list". Even if i had an extra 10 000 SEK burning in my pocket :)

    And most important, i´m not cool enought to wear them.

    I think if you're ballsy enough to join the MTO above, you're instantly cool enough to wear them!

    Alas, I'm on a shoe diet, and I'm not sure they'd fit me. But...maybe...[​IMG]

    So you´re telling me coolness can be bought? I´m afraid it´s going to hit back if one steps outside ones limits of coolness
