Here are ADs. These seemed to be known as Ball Strap Oxfords.http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=3MpiAAAAIBAJ&sjid=mHgNAAAAIBAJ&pg=7005%2C2075169
As CTBrummie suggested, if Church's keeps the document as below, they can identify the date. http://uptowndandy.blogspot.com/2011/05/vintage-edward-green-for-paul-stuart.html Here are some pre-Prada's socks in chronological order. I haven't seen yours.
That may be in the early 90s.
"CHURCH&CO" on the first photo must be a very very old logo. They are probably before 1940s/1950s. Goodyear is an American company, so I think they were reheeled.
Is Michigan Relative Humidity Map true?http://www.usairnet.com/weather/maps/current/michigan/relative-humidity/Unless your garage is air-conditioned, high relative humidity is dangerous for leather.
Both have no stitching on the tongues and are fully unlined loafers.
Here is some information.For example, chrome tanned leather needs to be retanned to emboss it, because it has less plasticity. Some retanning agents may improve the tensile and tear strength, while I don't have the direct evidence.Chrome tanned leather has better breathability and anti-mold property, which would be an advantage.http://archive.org/details/jresv44n4p347The lower leather is Chromexcel which is heavily vegetable retanned. The color of the cross section looks...
The older shell is, the thicker it is usually.http://cobbler.txt-nifty.com/blog/2013/01/winter-gift-74b.html(The poster above, cloudylemonade, is the daughter of the founder of Aero leather.)

Are petroleum distillates dehydrogenated by ultraviolet and/or heat of sunlight?
In 1997, Prof. Tsunoda examined chemical analysis values (water content, total ash content, chromium content, etc.), mechanical properties (thickness, tensile strength, tear strength, etc.), and physical properties (water resistance, water vapor permeability, water absorbency, etc.) of calfskins and steerhides used for shoe uppers. http://www.hikaku.metro.tokyo.jp/images/pdf/121pdf/04.pdf http://www.hikaku.metro.tokyo.jp/images/pdf/122pdf/03.pdf I excerpted water...
