Denim, once limited to working-class wardrobes, became ubiquitous in the 1960s and '70s. Here the fabric of the boots has been printed with the words "denim" and "jeans" in a Pop Art–style font. The boots, with a moderate platform sole, zip at the center front with a closure that clearly references the fastening on an actual pair of blue jeans. These boots were donated to The Costume Institute from the collection of the denim retail outfitter Serendipity, well known in the 1960s and '70s for lavishly ornamented and painted denim garments.
