Did You Ever Own Those Classic Saddle Shoes?


The saddle shoe is a classic! They originated in the early 1900s and eventually became very popular in the 1950s. Before the ’50s, golfers generally wore the two-toned shoes. Women quickly fell in love with the shoe. The heels were low so that men and women alike could walk or run in them. However, they still looked classy so you could wear them anywhere.

While the style changed over the years, the basic look of the shoe has stayed the same. In the ’40s and ’50s, the shoes were popular with teens who would wear them with bobby socks. Some schools even required students to wear them!

After the ’60s, the trend seemed to die down. Now you don’t see that many people wearing saddle shoes unless they are wearing a ’50s costume!
