Spectators 

Elegant handmade, bespoke Spectator shoes make fine dress shoes

Spectators were initially criticised for being too ostentacious, but were quickly embraced by both famous and infamous Jazz-Era celebrities. These iconic Oxfords and Brogues feature contrasting colors which can be as subtle as a few shades or as pronounced as black and white. Often adorned with broguing, Spectators are true works of art. Spectator shoes have been experiencing a resurgence since the iconic TV series "Boardwalk Empire"
