    They did a beautiful job on these. I especially like the shaping at the ankle and the shape of the heel.

    I agree in those details being what are able to make the difference is something as "simple" and elegant as a chelsea boot!

    Any more pictures in different lighting? That might be the first pair of reptile leather shoes that I've ever liked.

    Further progress: the sole went on and the 360 welt disappeared

    I think this was a good decision for this style shoe.

    I agree in that this is the way to go for this style. It shows how sleek and clean this type of shoe can be while still having his own touch.

    I love that pair as well! It is such a gorgeous leather!

    It would be nice for someone to post the different examples of croc and gator leathers some time.

    I forgot to ask you last time, but did you ask for the heel to be so narrow?
