Go-go boots were a hit shoe in the ’60s and ’70s with their squared-off toes, patent, latex-like uppers and block heels. While you may not see them all over today’s runways, the style is still great for completing any throwback costume (from a go-go dancer to Britney Spears in “Oops…I Did It Again”) or adding bold flair to an everyday look. And even if you have wide calves, there are options out there for you. To narrow down your search, we brought you some of our favorite wide-calf go-go boots from brands like Ellie Shoes and Funtasma. Shop them all ahead to bring this funky retro style back into the 2020s.
