A pair of Boots, known as Fashion Boots or go-go boots, is a necessary winter footwear in the modern world, apart from being a fashion item. Ranging from ankle to thigh in length, and used as casual, formal, or business footwears, they come in large varieties.
There has been ups and downs in the journey of a working boot converting into a fashion boot. In 1960’s finally, they became a style statement and interpreted “as an antidote to the femininity”.
Today, there are ankle boots, calf-length boots, knee boots, over-the-knee boots. They are made of fur, leather, rubber and suede. Over a period of time, there has been up gradation in the creation of boots from rising hemlines to zip-fastened to lace-up styles to metal accents. In today’s fashion world, people have a great sense of appreciation in carrying vintage style or latest trends. The old-fashioned boots, platform-soled boots, and even thigh-length PVC boots are popular among the female of all age groups.
Every woman, every teenager does own a pair of boots now. Apart from the suede/leather boots in my wardrobe, I added one more to the collection of my footwear. A pair of crocheted boots that I am wearing every day in my home during winter. With a layer of clear Silicone sealant in the base, I can easily walk on carpeted, tiled or wooden floors.
