Marilyn Monroe once said, "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world." This statement reminds true today-and will 100 years from now! However, if you give a girl a Go-Go boot, she'll conquer the dance floor in style-while saving the world, all at the same time.
The Go-Go boot has been a staple in woman's footwear since the fall of 1964, when French fashion designer André Courréges took the look to the runway. A gogo boot is either calf-length or, they land anywhere near or above the knee. There is typically a very short and bulky heel-or, they have no heel at all. As the years went on, the look of the go-go boot had transformed. With shorter hemlines came higher boots, and eventually Yves Saint-Laurent created the first thigh high garter go-go boot, which attached under the super mini skirts. Scandalous and glorious all at the time time, we know.
Women were set in a 1960's craze and the Go-Go boot was the center of attention. It was an accessory to any outfit, and accentuated a female's leg to perfection. Over time, the maxi skirt become popular, and the furor around the classic go-go boot had diminished.
Although Go-Go boots are not worn as everyday footwear, they are seen quite often-especially when it comes to completing a fun costume. The gogo boot can be worn by ladies of all ages-as long as the costume is appropriate! From superman and robin to a modern retro dancer, this go go boot is exactly what your costume needs!
With the mod patterns, glitter, and funky neon colors-a disco diva should always have a gogo boot on her feet! Just like the Hullabaloo and Shindig dancers, every fun dancing costume, with a short hemline, deserves a iconic white go-go boot, too!
Made not only for dancers, this classic boot can complete the look of many, many costumes. If dressing in a sexy Batman costume, a black gogo boot would certainly add some sex appeal! These calf-length boots would complete the look of any 60's or 70's themed costume-famous characters included!
For your little girl, she'll look appropriate and adorable when pairing a colorful Go-Go boot with a variety of costumes. From superheros to decade dancers, a Go-Go boot is a perfect solution to their shoe dilemma.
