As a part of the whole "what's old is new" craze in
men's wear it is nice to see saddle shoes again.
They were originally made by Spalding, a sporting
goods company, in the early 1900s. The saddle
was thought to add support to the instep for
tennis, badminton, and other court sports. Maybe
they are the granddaddy of all sports shoes.
