    The Spectator shoe is a low heeled, oxford, semi-brogue or full brogue shoes which are constructed from contrasting colors. The colors are on the toe and heel cap of the shoe. The lace panel have a darker color of the main body. The style of shoes first came into market in nineteenth century but they became more popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s. There are different combinations like white shoe body with black color , similarly other combinations of colors can be used. The popular shoes are saddle shoes which consists of saddle shoe’s plain toe and distinctive design . The first footwear shoe was designed by John Lobb who designed it for cricket in 1868.
    This type of shoe was constructed with Willow calf leather or white buck or reverse calf suede. For better ventilation purposes the white portion of shoes was constructed with hot leather. For the fashion for women spectator shoes are designed during that period and it was a very high fashion symbol. Spectator shoes are very popular for their color in women. Elvis did wear those two tone shoes in the era of 1960’s. In his earlier concerts you can also see him performing with wearing those two tone shoes. When he was on the famous Milton Berle show he also wore those two toned shoes.
