FAQ Section on Alligator Shoes:
Satisfy your concerns regarding alligator shoes for men by reviewing the list of Frequently Asked Questions below:

  1. Does alligator leather last?
    Yes, alligator leather is durable and long-lasting. The strong alligator skin fibers make them more resistant to wear and tear due to exposure to everyday conditions. Although the material is typically durable, your care and maintenance efforts affect its lifespan. For example, storing your alligator leather in a cool, dry place and cleaning it with the right conditioner according to manufacturer instructions can increase its lifespan.
  2. Are alligator shoes legal?
    Yes, alligator shoes are legal. However, states such as California have restrictions on the trade of alligator products. Although alligator shoes are legal in several states, regulatory authorities set rules regarding the number of alligators people can kill for leather each year to prevent the extinction of the species. 
  3. How can you tell if alligator shoes are real?
    For starters, check the price point. Considering the limited supply and intense work required in production, a low cost, typically less than $200, should raise your suspicion about the shoe’s authenticity. You can also assess the scale patterns on the shoes. These patterns differ depending on what part the alligator skin comes from, whether the belly or back. Imitation pairs often have a resembling pattern regardless of the part the skin comes from.
  4. Can alligator skin shoes/boots get wet?
    Yes, alligator boots can get wet depending on the amount of water exposure. Alligator boots can repel water in the rain, but full submersion in water for an extended period of time can strip the hide’s finish. This allows it to absorb too much water, which can cause cracks or breaks when they dry. This is ironic, considering alligators spend most of their lives in water, right? Dry your shoes with a cloth or towel and let them dry naturally, avoiding direct sunlight or using blow-drying machines to prevent damage.
  5. Is alligator skin waterproof?
    No, alligator skin isn’t waterproof. However, using specific tanning, you can make the shoe surface water-resistant, protecting it from water damage.
  6. How do you care for alligator leather?
    Avoid excessive water when cleaning alligator leather. Instead, use a damp cloth to remove dirt. Gently dry the leather with a soft towel and let it dry naturally and be sure to avoid direct sunlight. Once dry, use the recommended conditioner to protect the hide from harmful elements. Test the conditioner on inconspicuous parts of the leather first before applying it all over. Store the alligator leather in a cool, dry place and avoid bending it to prevent creases. 
  7. What is the difference between alligator and crocodile skin shoes?
    Alligator skin shoes have an umbilical scar that typically resembles a star shape with webbing patterns and a head bump pattern of 2-2-2 for shoes made from the back of the head skin. In contrast, crocodile skin shoes have a back horn pattern of 4-4-2. Additionally, since alligators are rare, their slaughter regulations are regulated, making alligator skin shoes more expensive than crocodile skin shoes.

Why Alligator Shoes are Expensive

If you’ve ever taken a look at gater shoes and boots, you might remember the startling price that goes along with many of the shoes. However, unlike these Upscale Menswear have been able to keep costs lower so that you can enjoy affordable alligator shoes. The high-quality skins have to be prepared at specialized processing facilities, one that specializes with dying reptile skin. If you were to try to tan the reptile skin like you would with cowhide shoes, you would wind up with a subpar product; potentially damaging the reptile skin in the process. On top of this, alligators are protected species so that there is a limit on how many can be used to make fashion items to ensure that the ancient reptiles are not over hunted.

On top of this, the people who make alligator boots and shoes often have decades of experience and painstakingly make the shoes by hand instead of a large factory. That is why it is common to see alligator boots, and Mauri shoes too, made in Italy and Spain. These skilled cobblers craft the shoes by hand, from top to bottom, inside and out. After the skin pattern has been cut, the cobbler will put it through a skiving machine, which smoothes the edges for a sleeker look to the final shoe. Take a look at the genuine alligator leather boots and shoes above and find the right pair for the sophisticated man in your life.
