Yes, beautiful work for what it is! I suspect that whoever commissioned them was quite pleased with the results.Well those aren't for the mild mannered! I will say that Vass REALLY know what they are doing when it comes to cutting patterns for gator footwear. Just look at how the scales transition from a linear to a radial pattern right at the toe - giving almost the visual distinction of toe caps in a wholecut. And perfect symmetry in pattern between right and left shoes. Bravo.
