Rafael Custom Alligator boots
Without a doubt, the most luxurious of exotic leathers are made from the skins of alligators and crocodiles. These skins feature a variety of scale patterns. The scale patterns, lustrous finish and the toughness of a properly tanned alligator and crocodile leather offers your boot to be a work of art.
Little’s offers American Alligator, Nile Crocodile and Saltwater Crocodile.
Each pair of boots are cut from the same part of two separate skins, this is to ensure the scale patterns are matched.
Little’s uses the underside or “belly” of the American Alligator from animals farmed in Louisiana, Florida and other states.
Nile Crocodile comes from South Africa, Zimbabwe and other African countries. The scales on the bellies of Nile Crocodile are slightly more uniform in size and shape compared to American Alligator.
Saltwater Crocodile comes from Papua New Guinea and Australia. To get some perspective, alligator and Nile Crocodile leather products are worn by royalty, presidents, and titans of industry but the skin of Saltwater Crocodile takes it to another level! This Saltwater Crocodile is characterized by the smallest scale pattern, combined with a naturally rich, full bodied, supple feel makes this leather the ultimate boot on our feet.
