How Go-go Boots Became Popular: 

The go-go boots shoe trend was started by 60’s go-go dancers. They needed shoes that would turn heads but would still be comfy enough to dance in all night. 

Go-go boots blended perfectly with other 60’s fashion trends and aesthetics. Go-go dancers commonly wore their boots with matching shift dresses or mini skirts. 



With so many people frequenting clubs like Whiskey A Go-go, this trend rose in popularity. Soon enough, go-go boots were on the runway and in every department store.
