    I have NO patience. Took pics during lunch & skipped my sandwich.

    1930's Foot Joy Alligator & Suede Cap Toes.

    Something for everyone, I think.

    See, now those suede and crock ones I would like if they didn't have suede. I'm not a suede guy personally. Combine the crock derbies and these and that would be killa. I mean I wouldn't ever wear them, but I like the concept.

    I can see what you're saying. I'm definitely NOT usually a suede guy. It gets stained too easily.

    However, the black suede on these is a very deep black. Even darker than any calf leather I've seen. With the suede sucking up all the incoming light that hits it + the Gator reflecting all the light that hits it, it's a pretty cool effect.

    Agreed on the effect. Most black suede I have seen looks like really dark brown, which I don't care for.

    YES! The dark brown has a tendency to look "dirty", and my OCD side can't handle that!

    Yeah, it's screwed. Needs new laces too. As I wrote, I had no patience.

    Stunning vintage and the bit of a spade just gives them further edge.



    A lot in that observation IMO. That is where issh comes in to gives the added 5% of excitement.
