In the world of High quality alligator (not croc) the classic Nettletons, FootJoys and Florsheims are still the finest circa 1955-70. Hard to find in sizes above 10, though. I have a new, old stock Foot Joy saddle in gator that I will post tomorrow.

What about Nettletons 11D c1940s/50s?

Super, don't care about non-matching skins.

Wow! even better. I didn't reach that far back as so few remain, and those that do aren't generally in great shape. Nettleton, Florsheim and I forgot to mention Clapp, made the most beautiful and I am holding back tremendous envy and anger in that I rarely find anything in my size as gorgeous as yours. I did have a pair of Lee Kee ( Hong Kong MTO- Custom legend ) in a loafer, but your Nettletons are at the top. Another post mentions a dislike for non matching skins. Yours are matching skins. Just because the tiling, or plate patterns don't appear "matched", the finer makers always used from the same skin, so don't quite get the comment. You want uniformity of pattern? buy Dingman "embossed" leather. I have a Moreschi cap toe that isn't in the same league as yours. Well done

Yeah, Zonkey. Been the topic of convo on the EG threak.

One of the founders was once at St. Crispins. The shoes are made in Northern Italy. Some are handwelted, some goodyear, some blake, etc.

They make a few interesting models, quality looked pretty normal for upper end (not top end) Italian shoes.

Read the last few pages of the EG thread for more detail, If you like.
