We love to revive forgotten classic shoes for children. To gather ideas, old photos and memories are our main inspirational source. And we stumbled across these lovely American shoes. These oxford shoes are called saddle/dress shoes in the US. They were on vogue in the 40s/50s and are still worn by some classically dressed american children today. Saddle shoes are typically white in the front and back and have a brown/black saddle in the middle.
Funny how these cute shoes never made it to Europe. In Europe they remind us more of golf or bowling shoes, or tap shoes, don't you think? Should we dare a revival? Maybe a 'European-ised' version, let's see what our creative team can come up with. Would you like to see these shoes in our collection?
