Embrace the Retro Trend With 1960s-Inspired Go-Go Boots

Go-go boots were originally designed by André Courrèges in 1964 and were a staple in most women’s wardrobes during the late 1960s and ’70s. The iconic style is defined by a chunky low heel and a mid-length shaft. Some variations may also be knee-high or shorter and constructed from PVC and vinyl. To help you find the perfect pair, we did some research and curated a brief list featuring a few of our favorite options. Each boot has a 3-inch heel and comes in a variety of colors.
