Groovy Go-Go Boots
Go-go boots are forever associated with an exciting time in music, TV and fashion during the 1960s. Created by French fashion designer, Andre Courreges, the original sleek, modern boots came to mid-calf height and had a low heel. Wildly popular, this style of boot was worn by female dancers seen on music shows such as Shindig! Since fashion always evolves, the typical height of the go-go boot increased to knee-high level, and heels also went a bit higher. Classic styles were made of leather or shiny PVC material, which gave them a cool "space age" vibe. Our go-go boot collection includes boots with slender and wide calf areas, and heel height is typically 3-4 inches for adult boots. And while white is the most popular color choice, you can also find them in other fashionable colors.
Hip Platform Shoes
Platform shoes are one of the coolest and wackiest footwear fads of the jive talking 1970s. Before then, raised-heel shoes were typically worn by men seeking an easy way to add a few inches to their height. However, in the '70s, platform shoes became the de facto shoe style for many men, women and teens throughout the land. Most people who socialized at school, work or dance clubs had at least one pair of platform shoes in their shoe collection. While they may seem a bit challenging to wear, once you slip on a pair, you quickly get used to walking around in them, which we recommend doing before going out to your party or event.
