    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    its calf, hair on hide. loafers are the hair on hide with calf tassels and piping, the euro calf full brogue wingtip, the only colored only are hair on hide calf/calf and shark where the laces are, the next loafers are hair on hide calf in the front with shark in back, and then the wingtip loafer is the euro calf and hair on hide calf with euro calf tassels. i will post more pictures now.

    i made the shoes for a collaboration with a designer at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago for his senior fashion show, his name is Daniel Nelson. He wanted traditional men's dress shoes with a twist and a little play on texture-then he requested one with green as well!

    you're welcome. an austrian rtw brand, ludwig reiter, had some sneakers with hair on hide in their collection several years ago. iirc, it was pony and calf. unfortunately, i didn't pull the trigger, anyway. i wish this collaboration a lot of success and good luck. looking forward to the pictures. everything sounds refreshing and i'm always to catch with a twist.

    Although it shows off your attractive shoes rather nicely, I can only hope that fashion with the short socks, short trousers and hairy legs in between does not catch on.

    :D

    Agreed! those are some baaaad muthah's. Takes a LOT of personality to pull them off, but if one can... wow.

    VRaivio-
    The shoes were for a runway show- the designer of the clothing collection wanted it used in the shoes! I like the outcome though.
