  • J. Riggings, U. S. A.
    3-Eyelet Cap-Toe Spectator Derby, Circa 1970
    Euro 340

    .Riggings was established in 1969, during the “swinging sixties” and this pair of “mod” spectators is most likely from the period. At its height, Riggings chain boasted 295 stores coast to coast, catering to young men with a wide range of up to the minute business and sportswear. Like many struggling mall chains it gave up the ghost in 1999.

    The rather bold spectators shown here, with black scotch grain over white smooth calf, are surprisingly well made, Goodyear welted with sturdy all rubber heels. I can well imagine these worn under your summer whites or black jeans but it’s uses are limited only by one’s imagination
