how often have you worn these, I wonder how they would crease over the time
These are worn probably 5 times or so. Big creases seem to pop up quite early (the nature of the stiff material), and they don't seem to smooth out with the trees. Stingrays are not very pliable.
Sting Rays make great wallets. The only benefit as shoes is they dun scuff and easy to clean. They aren't supple enough as shoes i'm afraid.
nutcracker, what venues have you visited in stingray shüüs? The leather looks like armour, I'm having difficulties picturing it in use outside of nightclubs.
I wear them in broad daylight, in jeans, walking or shopping....alone. Mainly to break them in (btw these are D width but Deco's are not as tight fitting as I expected and they're quite comfortable). This stuff really glitters in certain lighting condition, but most people don't seem to know they're stingray. Gotten complement just once (only at a nice shoe store where they do seem to show respect to people wearing special shoes). This is before I added the satin laces. I still haven't found a formal function or party to wear them.

I haven't found a place that does stringray wallet tastefully (to my eyes), care to share what your find is?

Interesting that these seem to be two piece glued together, rather than one piece with blind holes. What were these priced at?
