But today, I will make an exception due to a personal pet peeve of mine: proper go-go boots. If you'd like a simple history of go-go boots, you can't go wrong with Wikipedia. Today, however, I'd like to keep it simple.
THESE are proper go-go boots:
|The calf-high go-go boot. Rrrr....
|Courregès's famous Space Age versions. Click here for more of his clothes designs.
|My personal favorite, the Mondrian go-go boot!
|Action go-go boots! And for a great story on a young girl's experiences with go-go boots in the 1960s, drop by here.
These, on the other hand, are drill team/cheerleader boots:
|Oh, I bet those black circles had you thinkin' these were 'Mod' for a moment, huh?
|Chunky heal and round-toed. Yup, cheerleader boots!
|For the men whose eyes have moved beyond the boots, you can see more here.
|Find yourself needing boots for a drill team routine, then you can find more here.
|...oh yeah, we were talking about boots, huh...
Oh, and to bring this back to the MALE Mod side of things, if these are considered the guy's version... I'll take 'em. (Oh wait, turns out I already have a pair of these!)
