The boot, which had slipped out of fashion in the 1920s, returned as an important fashion style in the early 1960s. While the new versions initially had a modernistic feeling (as the go-go boot and the Courregès boot), by the late 1960s, the bohemian influence on fashion was generating frankly historicizing and "ethnic" effects. Proclaiming affinity with their historical predecessors, high laced boots became known as "granny boots". This pair of boots demonstrates both qualities, with its traditional cut and lively "folk" type embroidery.
