Well, it’s one for the money …
This is a bottle of Blue Suede Shoe Dressing, I flipped when I found it. I love everything about it, it just makes me smile. I thought the bottle has great design, the swab dauber is attached to the screw on plastic top..

    This makes me swoon, especially as I owned blue suede shoes growing up and I’m sure I used this product or something like it on them. Just thinking about the heritage of blue suede shoes and who might have also applied this suede dressing makes me swoon just as hard. However, nothing makes me swoon like the design of that bottle. Those ridges in the glass are fantastic and the blue color it retains as the amount of liquid in the bottle goes down is crazy GORGEOUS!!

    How tall is the bottle?

    Did blue suede shoes come out in the late 50’s when “white bucks”, were also popular? Was it Elvis that sang “Blue Suede Shoes”….and Pat Poone that wore white suede shoes?
    As a preteen, it’s a faint memory.

      Yes, blue suede and white buck shoes were both mid to late 60s. Gene Vincent sang “blue suede shoes” first and then Elvis. And that was definitely Pat Boone in the white bucks.

    Uh Oh…Carl Perkins wrote “Blue Suede Shoes” and recorded it first … and then there was that who sold more copies “Suede” thing goin’ on???…
    The very cool Gene Vincent probably recorded it too.. Didn’t all the Rockabilly guys seem to share???..
    Pat Boone…and those “White Bucks”…omg..
    I guess Footwear was very important in the !950’s….smile

    OK here’s one more shoe from the 50’s. Black and white saddle shoes. Brown and white too. Was this not THE shoe gals wore? The era of poodle skirts, detatched round type collars worn with sweaters, gray felt poodle skirts and who knows what else???

      I started wearing saddle shoes again in the mid 70’s and wore them EXCLUSIVELY until about 1980. All my early hits were written in them. I still have all my pairs – at least 30 of them – in my storage place. Red and white, black and white, blue and white, brown and white, brown on tan suede, white on white, etc. All have either wooden or orange rubber soles.
