    You insult me, I would NEVER wear faux rattlesnake. [​IMG] It´s faux mamba or nothing.

    I bought them in Birmingham, UK, when I studied there. The brand is Jones Bootmaker, and they were reduced from £200 to £20.

    My first "serious" shoes, for a given value of "serious".


    Was it for a bet?

    I love exotic skins but that is too much for my liking.

    Oh yes, the patina. Allow me to point it out to you with the power of photoshop.

    Even from the limited perspective of a noob, I would say Those can be styled. They're single pointed, and a power play, but pick the outfit, the occasion, the play, You go, boy! P

    This thread makes me regret not picking up those brown/pink Barker spectators.

    £20 is not too bad. I'm sure others have done worse.

    That said, the only time I will be pimping those is if the snake had attacked me so I can make an example out of it and have a cool story to tell.

    That reminds me, when I was 18 I went longlining in the Barents sea for the summer holidays. Two days into what would be a seven week stint a large wolf-fish ripped a huge chunk off my steel toe wellingtons. After the initial shock (those fish got TEETH) I stamped it to death, filetet it, and brought it home with me. It was delicious.

    Yes, one of those. I was terrified.

    True story.
