::taps mic:: I'm so fancy, you should already know, I'm in the fast lane....mkay, got that outtta my system. I gots no idea who Benjamin Adams is but the difference is in their use of materials. The shoe on the right is peau de soie and it shows through in the picture. The shoe on the left is not. An important distinction in a shoe that you wear all day long because peau de soie is culled from silk (which, as a natural fiber, allows your feet to breathe). Satin (the shoe on the right) does not. Don't neither one of em look comfortable to me and I'd bet cash anybody stuttin your gear won't know the difference but after hours of wear them dawgs might. lol. board missusses? flip flops? attest?
