Similar to the saddle shoe in their two-tone palette, the first spectator shoes were designed in London, 1868, for cricket players. As the shoe evolved into a dressier style, versions of the spectator shoe became available for women (they are usually available as wingtips, or loafers). High-heel versions reached a peak in popularity from the 1920s to the 1950s.

The spectator pump experienced a revival in consumer interest in the 1990s as rockabilly culture and vintage fashion received mainstream attention. Although their popularity waxes and wanes, this (typically) white “summer shoe” with crisp lines, undoubtably remains a fine example of a dress shoe perfect for a variety of occasions.
