Saddle Me Up ~

Wikipedia Definition of the Saddle Shoe~

“The saddle shoe is a low-heeled, oxford, casual shoe characterized by a plain toe and distinctive, saddle-shaped decorative panel placed mid foot. Saddle shoes are typically constructed of leather and are most frequently white with a black saddle, although any color combination is possible.

Saddle shoes are worn by both men and women in a variety of styles ranging from ultra high platforms to golf cleats.

According to the New York Times, in the United States, saddle shoes have enjoyed a recent comeback among males in their teens, twenties, and thirties.”
And I have personally seen older gentlemen sporting their saddles.

To fresh up the old version of the saddle shoe color blocking is all the rage. I recently saw these in a recent shopping trip.
Not sure how long this will stay in vogue but if you have a pair pull them outta the closet and how about trying some new colored laces to freshen them up?  Thinking a cheap alternative to a new look.

  1. I like saddle shoes. I haven't seen the vivid color blocking you show here. Wondering where you found these. Think it's about time to go shopping...
