    Sure, especially when you paid $25 for a pair Grenson Masterpiece at PS sales. 1 pair of gator RLPL cost the same as 53 pairs of Grenson MP.

    I don't understand the broguing (although there is just little of it) on alligator shoes. It does not go well with the texture of the alligator. It may be a nice touch on smooth calf skin, but why on alligator?

    Yeah, I agree. RLPL makes these shoes in calf too, and I suppose they just didn't want to change the model, only the skin.

    Marc, what happened to the auction that you won for that same shoe from a seller in China? I remember you posting about how to contact them for non shipment? [​IMG]

    These were my most desired pair of shoes. This past Thursday on my visit to Paul Stuart in NYC, I made them mine. Grenson black velvet dress slippers with Pirate fronts. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    How did you manage to get this image ? Did you have to torture Olga ? I tried to link to another pair of their shoes but the new website is very unfriendly.

    Printscreen key on you keyboard, press it. Then go into MS Paint/ Photoshop etc. and Ctrl+V or paste, and crop accordingly.

    It is a goodyear welted leather sole, with a rubber outer layer for longevity.
