Interesting. The texture is what sold me. I couldn't pull them off personally but I can see my brother Andyboy or someone being able to do it just right. Will Yan shot them and notes the details - imported French navy leather with EVA outsole and double-stitched leather binding, eco-friendly non-carbon processed salmon fish leather and leather lined interior with custom light insole. Sounds expensive. Well worth it if you can swing it. This Holiday.
