I was going to give these 1 star...
on November 9, 2014
I was expecting big things from these shoes, but I was extremely disappointed.
Although these shoes fit well, the snakeskin on them looks awful. NOTHING like the pictures. When I got them it looked like the shoes had shed their snakeskin.
I know you can't expect high quality snakeskin for $80, but the seller could at least be more honest about what they're selling. These shoes probably sat in a hot warehouse and dried up.
Now I got some shoe oil specifically for snake skin and wiped them down a couple of times and was able to salvage them somewhat, but if someone takes a closer look they'll probably laugh at the quality.
Since I was able to save them, I didn't give them 1 star, but seriously if you want a good looking pair of shoes, these are NOT it.
So I've owned these shoes for two months and even with the high quality oiling it's still hard to save the dried up snake-skin. I didn't oil them for 3 weeks and they ended up looking just as bad as when I got them. Once again, if you don't plan on oiling them every week, then avoid them. Do NOT buy!
