    Since a few months I have been thinking about ordering a stingray wholecut. Last saturday Riccardo was in Amsterdam with a few pieces of stingray. So we talked a bit about what I wanted and what he recommended.

    We decided on a wholecut, made in goodyear with wooden pegging. The piping, laces, lining, waist of the sole and even the shoe trees will all be made in same colour purple. A very, very dark purple bordering on black. The diamond/pearl of the stingray will be on the tongue of the shoe.

    I have asked Riccardo to update regularly with photo's so I could share them with you fellas. So here is the first bunch of pictures.

    1) pieces are cut..

    Awesome. Makes me want stingrays, and this coming for someone who generally hates exotics.

    They are black, but the colour changes a bit with lighting.
