Short History of Bravery.

The history of “spectator” shoes shows that when certain men are brave, other men become less cowardly.

1925. Scandal. Prince of Wales arrives in U.S. wearing tan-and-white suede “spectator” shoes. According to newspaper reports, “It was considered little short of caddish at the time.”

1934. Duke of Kent wears “a pair of black-and-white sports shoes” to his wedding. No mention of the police being summoned.

1940. Cary Grant wears leather-andhemp spectators to Malibu lawn party. American men say, “Now why didn’t I think of that?”

“Dashing” is an understatement.

Italian Calfskin Spectators (No. 5233). Rich, brushed-leather wingtips with fine cotton canvas that looks like linen. Calfskin lining. Precise scalloping and perforations. The trim leather sole has grooved edges, an unexpected and elegant thing.

Perfect for standing on the running board of the Isotta-Fraschini or showing them how to do the mambo at the Sans Souci in Havana, ca. 1943. Made in Italy.

Men’s sizes: 7 through 12, whole and half, and 13.

Color: Brown and Natural.

Great Spectator Shoes
I bought one pair and loved them. When priced dropped, I bought a second pair. I may buy a third. They fit fine. I wear an orthotic, so I ordered a half size up.
