    I saw those white & tan spectator shoes in the Ben Silver catalogue and also thought they were awesome. Did you buy them?

    How do you clean them?

    Not mine, I'm afraid. They are bespoke George Cleverley.

    I had inquired to Tony G. over at Edward Green about a year ago about making me a pair of alligator skin EGs. If I remember correctly, they would have cost me $4450.00. The ones that are on ebay right now that marc37 points out might be the best looking shoes I have ever seen. Any guesses on how much they will end up going for? They have no reserve, but I hardly think they need one.

    Wow, those are amazing -- I can't believe there are 4 pairs up for bid on EBay. And not in my size. As for the ultimate price -- well, those NWT croc Lobbs went for over $1,000 a few weeks ago. I wouldn't be surprised to see these do the same. They are very unique and rare. I'm sure those Japanese shoe fetish guys are licking their chops.

    I cant get over those RLPL black alligator slip ons, they are works of art. I wonder if I would feel self conscious in them? They are on the 89 last, in case anyone was wondering. On a tangent, does alligator require any kind of special care, or just the usual paste/wax treatment that you would use on calfskin?

    Thats disapointing about the lack of shoe trees, but that wouldnt stop me from buying them. Even if they go for 50% off retail, its still a deal.

    For kicks, I just clicked on this auction again to be greeted with the message: Bidding has ended for this item at US $1,325.00. You were outbid.

    Thank goodness. Don't know what I was thinking.
