It does not always show in a picture, you can't feel the difference in a picture, but in person the Alligator is much softer and has a high quality and very expensive look. The Hornback Alligator skin in addition to being softer is thicker and will hold up better. The Hornback name comes from the rough, sometimes pointed area of the back or topside of the Alligator. The belly is the underside and very smooth and makes a very formal and beautiful shoe. Which ever you choose, our Alligator shoes are top of the line handcrafted quality first product.
