Frankly, I'm not sure...in theory, they could be from the 50's. I've just seen shoes with that sole and heel in the 90's and I don't have any other reason to believe that they're 65 year old shoes.
That being said, I probably came off as unnecessarily negative in my original post. I think that these are a good deal at their opening bid and maybe even at the BIN. I've sold Florsheims--probably this exact model, but in Burgundy--on eBay with a .01 starting bid/no reserve and I was offered a $126 BIN on them.
