The Saddle

Heights Kenchi

Meet Spectator’s cousin, Saddle. A two-tone oxford shoe that became popular during the 1950s. Unlike its relative, the saddle’s contrasting tones were not found on the toe or heel cap of the shoe, but rather placed mid foot as a decorative saddle-shaped panel. Its most popular color combinations were white and black, though other combinations were possible. The shoe was originally constructed in all leather.


The style was so popular that the legendary Elvis Presley wore saddles in 1957 during his performance of Jailhouse Rock. “Let’s Rock, Everybody, Let’s Rock”
