Walking a mile in their crocodile-skin shoes

There was much to savour in a recent BBC TV documentary called Inside the Billionaire's Wardrobe, in which reporter Reggie Yates showed us the things that make billionaires happy, the little extras like the skins and furs of exotic beasts and reptiles that are converted into wondrous coats and shoes.
I would recommend, in particular, the trainers worn by the music mogul Jay-Z, which were created using the skins of elephant, ostrich, python, crocodile, alligator, stingray, lizard, boa and calf.
A lovely pair of shoes, if somewhat beyond the reach of the man in the street.
