those are fantastic! i've used Bick4 on reptile, and it works great. perhaps i'll try reptan; it's a great name and reminds me of the 80s show, V.I found these Stetson shoes through David's Watch List in June. They were a $25 BIN purchase and were listed as "baby alligator". Sure appears to be real reptile "something", but I don't see any labeling on the shoe to indicate. The insole is printed with the retailer's name in script, "Las Vegas" <illegible>. Under that, in block characters is "Las Vegas" <illegible>. A cloth Stetson diamond label can be seen in the first photo. They fit me well and are in good condition.
Here's what I've done:
- disinfected interior with 91% isopropyl alcohol and 10 Seconds spray, then hydrated the interior with Bick 4.
- wiped the exterior with a damp rag, then applied 2 rounds of Saphir Reptan.
- the heel top lifts were very worn, so I had my local cobbler replace them.
I remembered Justin Wilson's Alligator With No Shoes story while working on these.
