“Full gator” boots, i.e., those whose vamps and shafts are both made of gator, are extremely expensive if you buy them new. It will set you back several thousand simoleons if they’re made by a good outfit. But I get mine on eBay for a tiny fraction of that, and they’re often new or almost so. Like cars, the minute you take a boot out of the store, its value depreciates enormously.
