Alligator Shoes also known as gator shoes are for the fashion minded man who buys the very best. They are fully made by hand unlike mass produced footwear like Mauri Shoes. One time a good customer of mine was in the store shopping and was interested in buying some what he referred to as Gator Shoes and sometimes mistakenly for Crocodile Shoes which are really expensive reptile shoes made of alligator leather because he had heard other people bragging about the fact that either they owned a pair of Mezlan Shoes or they knew someone that did. He had heard reviews that mens gator shoes made from alligator skin leather cost hundreds of dollars which I had confirmed to him but he didn't quite understand why these fancy alligator skin footwear from David Eden shoes cost so much to buy. So quickly I went and retrieved a pair of Belvedere Shoes that you can buy and that we sell online and pulled them out of the box for review. I gave him one shoe to look at for review and had the other shoe. I started explaining to him why these hand made exotic skin shoes cost so much more to buy than a look alike version of a printed leather shoe that you can buy cheap.
I pointed out that first of all there is a rarity of exotic animal skins like alligator available to be made into to these hand made gator shoes and also explained the fact that gold costs so much more than silver to buy because in comparison there is much less gold in the world than there is silver so by that very nature it will make gold cost that much more to buy. Second, I started showing him the quality features that a pair of genuine alligator shoes for men have. I told him to pull out the paper stuffing and put your hand inside the gator shoes he was holding. Feel that? It's a full lambskin glove leather lining that is buttery smooth. Your feet will feel that luxury immediately. You don't find that in a pair of $70 shoes that you buy. At best, there maybe a partial cheap pigskin leather lining but if you put your hand inside you will feel that forefoot part of the shoes has fabric for a lining not a full glove quality lambskin lining that you would find in a pair of real gator shoes.
There are Italian style wingtip shoes and then there are genuine alligator skin shoes by Belvedere. Don't get duped into thinking that all loafers are created equal. Once you see a pair of Belvedere exotic skin shoes, your mind will change.
Once you see how the alligator skin just wraps around these Belvedere Shoes you'll be entranced. The Oscar by Belvedere shoes features an Italian lace up design made of the best that a alligator can bring you in a pair of shoes.
Take a good look at the sole and heel of these shoes and you'll know right away that only real Italian hand crafted shoes look like these. These are Alligator Skin Shoes by Belvedere. The Marco is pure exhibit of Italian design study combining hand made craftsmanship and Italian good looks.
