*NEW – ALLEN EDMONDS Saddle Oxford, Circa 1980: 44D (US 10.5D)
Vintage Allen Edmonds
Two-Tone “Walnut” Saddle Oxford
In Original Carton, Shoe Trees and Flannel Travel Bag
The saddle of leather over the instep was originally intended as reinforcement for sport. Like the two-tone Spectator or Co-respondent shoe, the Saddle Oxford began in the early part of the century as a buckskin lace–up with a contrasting smooth leather saddle. It made it way into golf in the 1920, and although never truly successful as a sport shoe, soon became widely accepted by the bobby socksers and the collegians of the mid-century. This 1980’s example by this top-notch American shoemaker is, unfortunately, no longer in production but we are fortunate to have what may be the last available, new and unused in original packing, with accessories.
