Real Alligator Labeled Alligator Print

AE Malibu shoes

Here is a pair of Allen Edmonds Malibu genuine alligator mislabeled as print shoes.  Allen Edmonds style number 4632, listed in the 1975 catalog as bone alligator and patent combination.  From almost 40 years ago, Allen Edmonds describes the Malibu as an “underlay moccasin toe slip-on with elastic quarter piping . . . single chrome flex sole, custom rubber heel.” This style number did not make it to the 1976 catalog, so it could have been a one year wonder.

Downsides to the shoes are the wear and tear.  Seller does a good job of showing all angles.  Other downside — size 14 AA.  Very long, very narrow.

Hanover tell is the diagonal line above the side heel.  Also, the circle with outside diamond on the front of the toe medallion is a Hanover (probably L B Sheppard) design.  Correct size is 11D based on listing stated interior size 11 5/8 inches.
