White bucks, a type of laced shoe with a red sole, appeared around 1870. The first bucks were made from Brazillian or Chinese deer (buckskin) and were worn as tennis shoes. Later they became popular among the upper-class New Englanders, especially at Ivy League colleges. It has been said that you only may wear your bucks after Memorial Day, but why wait another week?
