Why Men's Designer Alligator Skin Shoes Are So Popular

Aug 18, 2007
As the name implies the shoes made from alligator skins are commonly called alligator shoes. Just as with the leather that comes from cows for most shoes alligator shoes are made from the hides of alligators and are very popular due to the natural durability of the alligator skin. Because of limited availability of alligator skins the shoes are relatively expensive in comparison in relation to other shoes constructed of more common materials such as that of cowhide. Until recently the alligator was considered an endangered species by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service but after years of limited harvesting has been released and there are now hunting seasons during which the reptiles can be taken.

Like crocodiles, alligators have been on the planet for many millions of years and are probably the closest living relatives to the dinosaurs. Their huge teeth and incredibly resilient and tough skins give us an indication of what the dinosaurs may have been like. This same quality is also what makes them such great shoes, they are practically indestructible and in addition to being used for shoes the hides are also used to fashion wallets and belts.

Some of the more popular manufacturers and retailers of alligator shoes are found below.

One of the top makers of alligator shoes is the Mezlan company from Spain. These shoes are considered some of the highest quality alligator shoes you can find with some of the best craftsmanship in the shoe industry and they are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles.

Another very well known maker of not only alligator skin shoes but also other exotic skins such as ostrich, crocodile, lizard and more is the David Eden Company. They have one of the largest selections of colors and designer styles in the entire world.

Regent is another company that specializes in high quality exotic designer shoes from all over the world. Although they feature shoes from all kinds of different skins and in a wide variety of styles their mainstay is their exotic skin department. This company is also known for having a wide array of sizes including those for people with extra wide feet.

As I mentioned above, the law of supply and demand keeps alligator shoes in the higher end of price ranges but they are so unique, long lasting and durable they are well worth the investment so get online and start shopping.
