    It's an X-ray of a Corthay Arca with a shoe-tree in it. I've seen the original in person and it's absolutely amazing. I wish Corthay sold prints of it.

    Lidfort Alligator Blucher with norvegese stitch.

    Obviously not for working in the law office (maybe in Texas?), but I like 'em just the same. Most shoes I see use the belly skin of gator & croc, but these use the back skin instead.

    Well, I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Most species of gator/croc have hugely predominant tiles on the back. This looks to me to be Caiman and while I have never seen back cut caiman in person, given species similarity, as well as photos of the species, I'd have to say that looks like belly and flank to me.
