more nostalgia

Ok, last post for awhile on "remember when". But a friend just passed this site on. If you were a saddle-wearing gal in your school days like I was, take a walk down memory lane as you peruse their vast selection.

As I just said to my friend, I remember thinking that these shoes were so comfortable. Clearly that was before I discovered Dansko clogs!

Love the saddle shoes ... I think a "remember when" post would be fun to do :-}

My nostalgic shoe would be penny loafers. With nickels in them. Or jelly shoes -- remember those? Oh so '80s. Or those cloth Chinese slippers... Or Capezio dance shoes... Ah, the memories...

OH my gosh!!! Talk about a flood of memories for those saddle shoes! My mom made me wear them when I was in grade school because I tended to be pigeon-toed. I hated them...absolutely hated them!! Then, in high school, they became all the rage and I wore them because I wanted to! About every two years or so, I become nostalgic for them again... and would love to have a pair. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Meg!

I wore them with my cheerleading uniform. Lest you jump to any conclusions, I did not have anything in common with the cheerleaders and I only did it for one year.

I was forced to wear those to "correct" my feet, I hated them then....a few years later they were all the rage...go figure!

I loved saddle shoes. I also wore jellies and salt water sandles.

We had green and white saddle shoes for Drill Team in High School! I loved them. But, like you, I love Dansko's now (Their US headquarters that distributes them is not too far from us near Blue Ball, Pa and there is an outlet there... I think you can find it on the web!!)

I wore saddle shoes with my cheerleading outfit..and then somewhere along the line we switched to cheerleading athletic shoes. I am a Bass penny loafer gal...STILL! I still wear them with jeans constantly in the cooler months. The pair I have now I have had for years and years and just take about once a year to the shoe repair guy for some little repair and they keep on going. They are just comfort wear for me!

I made both of my children wear Stride Rite saddle shoes b/c I wore them as a kid too. I can't believe my little guy is in their largest size :( He's not even 2!!!
I loved saddle shoes in elementary school & was so excited when they were permitted for our school uniforms. :)

Seriously, I use to wear them in the 80's and thought they were great. Now I think they would kill my feet. Love Dansko, Noat and Birks.

The pink and white ones are tempting for fun.

I stole my mom's saddle shoes when I was about 13 from when she was younger. I LOVE them!
