Spring preview: modern take on saddle shoes by Johnston & Murphy

Sneak peek:  Spring 2013 @ Johnston & Murphy-men's shoe collection

Vintage men's shoes are very hard to come by.  I search endlessly for classics like wingtips, spectators, captoe, and saddles to include in my Richards Fabulous Finds shop.  That is why I am so excited to see the classics are all coming back, but with a modern take.

My favorites so far for the season:  Johnston & Murphy Clayton saddle!

I like the fresh twist they put on this style.  A little bit dressier with the leather sole (normally rubber in tan or brick) and contrast stitching with extra perforations make it less "Joe College" and more "Vintage Dandy".

Plus the color combinations are amazing!
