Saddle shoes are formal two-toned, the usual black and white. Spalding, the sporting goods company first created the saddle shoe in 1906 as a "gym shoe". The overlaying saddle on the shoe was fashioned to give an additional strenth at the stress point per an old Spalding advertisment. During the 1920s students wore the Spalding saddle shoes for sports such as tennis, filed hockey, fencing and badminton.  The students enjoyed the saddle shoes so much they continued to wear them as "street shoes."  Spalding soon realized the original rubber sole did not function as a "street shoe" so they contacted an automtive brake lining producer to supply them with a better quality rubber; hence the famous "Spalding Coral Sole" was created. These days the saddle sho has been revitalized by countless manufacturers and is worn primarily as a fashion shoe or costume shoe.
