    Yes, that was the whole idea. I grew up with Crocodile Hunter on TV and I was really pissed when i heard a stingray got him.

    I can only imagine he is checking for strength and evennes of the heel. But I am not quite sure to be honest.

    IMHO the shagreen really brings out the shape of the last. It doesn't need any more decoration.

    Is this going to have eyelets for laces, or will it be a slip on? I have to say, as it is right now it looks a little strange. I love the leather though.

    I would never in my life wear those shoes. I can stomach some exotic skins, but those are just plain hideous in my opinion.

    If you like them however, more power to ya.
