Type of clothing:
When it was popular:
Description: Fashionable throughout the 70s until about 1979, mostly for women but even for men in the early to mid 70s. Most of the early 70s women's versions were continuations of the 60s stretch boot, fitted to the knee and usually with mid-high, block, flared, or wedge heels; rounded or bumpy toes; sometimes with platform soles. A variety of fabrics: vinyls, leathers, suedes, patchwork, cloth. Zips or laces front, side, or back. In the mid 70s, tops got looser and were usually limited to leathers or suedes, heels got higher and a little narrower and were usually stacked leather or wood, platforms lowered or disappeared. Many looked like English riding boots with high heels, and some were so full they had drawstring closures or jodhpur straps on the shaft. Some had turn down cuffs like cavalier boots. Dingo and Frye boots were real popular in the mid 70s. All this was out by 1979.

The first time that my wife-to-be and I went shopping together, she bought a pair of gray-white vinyl knee-high boots. She told the clerk she wanted to wear them and they looked great with the outfit she had on. In fact, she got some nice comments from people during the time we were continuing to shop. Almost all of the time back then, boots were worn with a skirt or dress (rather than under pants). These boots didn't have a zipper, but just pulled up around the leg. It was interesting that if she was wearing a bright color, the boots looked basically white, but with a darker color, they showed up more of a gray.
