Robert August knows that in 2023, more men are concerned about cultivating a sense of personal style and creating a unique and memorable look each and every day. That’s why they have designed their new line of saddle shoes, to give their shoppers a distinct take on classic men’s formal and work shoes.
Given its name for the additional piece of leather that fits like a saddle over the shoe, the saddle shoe conjures a nostalgic image of 1950s-era films and college students. Here, in 2023, Robert August is reimagining this typically colorful style and recreating it in new, subtly two-tone and single-hued colors, and in bespoke finishes like an artisan hand patina or genuine alligator.
One popular new model is their The Lincoln Ave. Saddle Shoe No. 4816. This refined shoe has a clean profile and features a burnished dark brown and cognac-painted calf leather upper. It also has a classic brown leather sole and traditional rounded English toe.
Robert August also now has a ‘Design Your Own’ function on their website. This means that shoppers can choose to purchase the new The Lincoln Ave. Saddle Shoe No. 4816 as is, or they can customize it according to their particular style preferences. With this option, shoppers can modify the material, color, toe style, sole and laces.
As Robert August makes all of their shoes to order in their Spanish artisan workshop, shoppers can also have the shoes made to measure. The store offers a size range of US 5 to US 17, with D, E and EE width profiles all also available.
A spokesperson for the artisan shoemakers said, “The Lincoln Ave. Saddle Shoes are the perfect way to add a touch of style to any outfit. Their distinct two-color look is a timeless classic that looks great with both casual and formal styles. Part of our Iconic Chicago Collection, these versatile shoes get their name from the saddle-shaped piece that goes across the lace area.”
