Bespoke Patent Leather & Suede Snakeskin Patterned Monk Strap Spectator
Unknown American Master
This is to be understood as either a work of art or one of madness; you decide. These are bespoke-custom made by an unknown American master. Considering the extremity of the model, he may have preferred anonymity. How one even arrives at this creation defies credulity. Where one finds the material, the patchwork snakeskin printed patent leather, is itself a mystery. Suffice it to say, you will not run into another pair of these on the golf links or on the boulevard. Regarding street use; add Euro 90 for a full conversion from golf to street bottoms by my master shoemaker. I suggest rubber soles for all weather use –the patent leather is already impervious to wet; why not continue in that vein….not to mention comfort.
These are difficult to photograph too. I have used various camera settings of which the lighter settings show more detail but the darker results are the most accurate in terms of colour.
Size Details:US 8.5D.....UK 7.5E.....Continental 41.5D, for the medium width foot.
The tops are in near perfect condition, bottoms showing no wear, remarkable for a vintage shoe this age. Sold without trees.
