Actually, they are the last of the fine US made American Alligator shoes. Foot Joy sold these as a golf shoe model until maybe 10 years ago (may have been more recent). While pretty good shoes, they are (I believe) Goodyear welted and I cannot say wether it is hand-stitched or not. Foot Joy made an Alligator shoe in the 1940's that was handwelted hand-stitched and had unbelievable skins. I'll put up some pics of a model soon.
Strange that they would "piece" the saddle.
