    I think I may have nicked this photo from eBay once.

    Shoot, if you are in LA and want some kind of largish spectators, check out Remix. They look like that but even cooler in my opinion.

    Anyone know how these hold up? Considering the source, i imagine they are decent quality.

    I wonder why he doesn't make a more 30s style cap toe or anything like that?

    Those are interesting. What kind of leather is it?

    Sharkskin. Really. Might be imitation, though.

    I asked Paul about that once. He replied that his customers saw wingtips as more "bada**" than cap-toes.

    I suppose a big part of his market is actually LA style people, who would like the bigger lug and wing tip style, as well as the latino Rock and Roll crowd, for lack of a better description, who are more fifties than forties, but not rockabilly.

    I like them, and can appreciate the large double stitched lug, and they are a cool look. But not very authentic as far as any shoe of the past looking like that. I may get a pair sometime.

    I imagine if he is making shoes anyway, though, and selling worldwide, he would find some demand for a nice buck or off white body with a nice brown or black cap toe.

    Didn't he used to do the light leather in a slightly off white or tan?

    Paul's biggest markets for his men's shoes are Europe, New Zealand/Australia and Asia. The double-lug sole is aimed at the Japanese market.


    For his women's shoes, the market is much wider. He told me that a young lady in Vietnam ordered several pairs. She's forming a swing dance club in Ho Chi Minh City.

    Not shark. Shark has long deep ridges Most likely embossed cow. I love the blue and white specs.
