I have just received the Palace Zeppas from 'Fashionanyone', which is good because I thought I might have been scammed after reading the thread on Moda-da. Any way I did receive the shoes and they are generally as described with very little wear on the soles. The only slight disappointment is that the tips of the Python scales are lifting a little around the heels and around the front of the platforms. Is this a typical problem with Python skins and is there anything that can be done to remedy the problem, apart from adding a minute drop of glue on each of the multitude of scales? Any advice much appreciated as the shoes are a present for my wife, Karen, and I would like them to look their best for her.
