The black gators circa 1966-1972 (+or - 2yrs). I purchased the loafer version in 1969 for $75 or $79. Keep in mind most high end calf or suede shoes retailed in the range of $30-35. Some brands would have been Nettletons, JM, Bally, Stacy Adams, Florsheim, E.T. Wright, Stetson, Edwin Clapp , Howard Foster, and more.
Stetson wingtip specs. Not alligator, but a solid shoe.
