New Alden desert boots!!!

If, like me, you feel that socks should be worn but not seen, then you'll understand why I've always preferred boots to shoes in Second Life, mainly because pants tend to be too short unless you like bell-bottoms. Boots keep socks out of sight, and for this reason alone, the humble desert boot is a winner. As always, I found that I could improve on the previous shape, and with a nip here and a tuck there, a new shape was born. Another thing I changed was the fastening. Gone are the laces, instead there is flexible lacing looped round leather covered buttons, that sit on the contrasting facing that extends down from the ankle collar.

New Strike 2 bowling shoes!!!

From time to time, I get the urge to revisit some of my older designs. My gaze recently fell upon my Strike! bowling shoes, and I decided that they needed a complete makeover. I began with a new shape, while keeping the familiar rounded toe of the original. Then I completely redid the textures. I kept the archetypal Red and Blue color scheme, but all the other colors are new.

"Strike 2" presents the bowling shoe in a wide range of exciting new colors! Feast your eyes on Black & Gold, Black & White, Blue & Yellow, Green & Gold, Orange & Black, Pink & White, Red & Blue and Red & Gold.

These shoes are UniSex and are fitted with a low-lag ReSizer from XS to XXL. Copy OK, Transfer OK, DEMOs and Fatpacks are all available at Jeepers Main Store. Free shirt and bowling ball with every purchase!

Hold onto your hats shoe fans, this week we're releasing not one but TWO new shoes!!!

Sebastian shoes re-released !!!

The Sebastian shoes were built on the same lasts as the highly polished Colbert men's dress shoes, but they never achieved the same popularity. Now that Jeepers new Main Store is settling in to its new location, I decided to give Sebastian a second look. The first thing that struck me is that these shoes need a polish! A good high gloss polish brought the colors to life, so I added two more colors: Bronze and Black & White. These, plus the original Red, Chalk White, Olive, Mustard and Midnight Blue and a plain old Black suede version completed the do-over. All Sebastian shoes are perforated for coolness. Sebastian - a selection that would please any Rock Star.
