Where Can I Find Traditional Saddle Shoes?

Where Can I Find Traditional Saddle Shoes?

Along with poodle skirts and flipped hairdos, saddle shoes were one of the trends that made fashion in the 1950s so much fun. These two-toned leather oxford shoes made a big comeback, driven by a spate of '50s-based movies and television shows that showcase fashion of the era, such as "Mad Men." There are bricks-and-mortar stores and online retailers where you can find these shoes, both vintage and new.

Costume shoes

    You can find a pair of brand new saddle shoes in a traditional black-and-white style for around $20 at chain costume shops like Party City, online specialty retailers like Costume Hub, or even major online retailers like Amazon. While these are perfect if you're putting together a whimsical '50s costume for a a sock hop or Halloween party, they tend to be made of cheaper, less durable materials.

New Shoes

    As fashion changes, saddle shoes are increasingly being produced by high-fashion labels. Cole Haan makes a classic pair for almost $200. You may find these shoes at fine department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus, or at the designer's own online shopping sites.

Other Options

    Peruse the shoe section at your local vintage shop, or a chain shop like Buffalo Exchange or secondhand stores like the Salvation Army or Goodwill. You might find a one-of-a-kind pair of vintage '50s leather saddle shoes for as little $5.


    For the best selection of rare and vintage saddle shoes in a wide range of colors, styles and sizes, search eBay. Aside from the classic black-and-white style, pairs can be found in combinations of red, blue, yellow and brown, in high-quality leather.

Fun Fact

    Saddle shoes are called such because of the "saddle" of colored leather that sits over the top of the shoe, just like the saddle on a horse.
