    I have a similar pair in black from Derby, but they're real croc, not the croc print. I LOFF my boots, but I wouldn't show in them

    Those certainly are eye catching!

    I have a friend who bought a pair of green ones like that 15 years ago for $20. She wore them in a rail class and got some interesting comments. The fact that she is a beautiful blond helped her get away with it a lot, me thinks.

    I am saving some gator skin this year after hunting and making some boots. I never even thought to make tall boots from it.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

    LOL apparently my tastes differ from COTH. I was sure this would go the way of the hot punk dressage saddle, but I was wrong! You guys seriously like these?!
    I could see maybe like a little toe cap and heel in gator, but the whole boot just seems barftacky

    Out of context on that sofa they look terrible. They probably aren't that bad worn with dark breeches. But not by me.

    Funny how at first every one loved them – and now we have a bunch of “no way gross” replies.

    I think they are a bit much –Having the inside of the calf so rough and bumpy seems like it would be hard on your saddle and pad.

    I WOULD like them in brown – with hunt top, toe cap and heel in alligator, I think that would be fun.

    Can't speak for others but I had the -no way GROSS -opinion from the beginning but did not bother to post until I saw a lot of posts drooling over them.
