The tongue hides an elastic gusset which keeps the loafer on the foot but also allows for them to be worn in warm climates where feet tend to swell
We used a jet black glace kid lining to compliment the croc scales
We kept the sole to 1/4″ for a sleek look and finished the whole shoe black to highlight the beauty of the skin. When wearing exotics in general, we prefer to let the scales do the talking and keep the shoe style simple. Crocodile may not be for everyone, but we think these loafers are absolutely beautiful, and, fortunately, the customer does too. This is where bespoke really blossoms where the customer and the artisan are in complete accordance. Fabulous shoes!
