The American shoe factory A.G. Spalding created and introduced the saddle shoe in 1906. First designed for indoor sports, the separate waist piece was reinforced and intended to bring additional support for the instep. The interesting and comfortable pairs were quickly worn by the thousands, and gained tremendous support among the youth both on and off court as well as among the older, golf-playing set.
In 1957 Elvis Presley wore saddle shoes in Jailhouse Rock.
Woody Allen is known to wear these shoes. Interesting still, Bert from Sesame Street often wore saddle oxfords and can be seen in his song and dance called Doin’ the Pigeon. The Peanuts comic strip character Lucy Van Pelt also wears saddle shoes.
