This shoe Game has come a long way... when the first ones who came was sown through slaves, but a freeman borne who's names Jan Matzeliger . Borne from a Dutch Engineer and a black slave in 1852. It was not quite gators then but that was where the craft began, Shoes that is...

The Shoe Game a story of the black man's first trade of substance, that provided for his family and crossed all socio-economic boundaries, to the Man that touts his hand crafted gator shoes. Its the art of the shine and the art of the style.
