Go Go Boots

TopGo Go Boots

 

In 1965, Los Angeles and New York discos were infiltrated with women dressed in thigh high dresses and go-go boots.


Go-Go boots were calf level boots with a broad heel that were either bright while leather or vinyl. They originated from the collection of Andre Courreges, a Parisian. His collection introduced white dresses three inches above the knee coupled with white mid-calf boots – called “kid boots”. That year his collection overshadowed such seasoned designers as Coco Chanel.

In 1965, Nancy Sinatra topped music charts with her smash hit “These Boots Are Made For Walking.” The record sold almost 4 million copies — she will forever be the poster child for go-go boots.

By the spring of 1965, go-go boots began to fall out of fashion with designers showing shorter skirts and higher boots.
