This Is The 2020 Way To Do Go-Go Boots

Eliza Huber
·2 mins read

Just as low-rise jeans and denim Dior epitomize the early noughties, and grunge-inspired flannels with ripped-up mom jeans (think Tai from Clueless) embody the '90s, the go-go boot is the quintessential fashion item of the 1960s. Designed by Andre Courrèges in 1964, go-go boots have had their fair share of iterations. And as of fall 2020, they're back in a big way.

From the original white mid-calf boot to knee-high styles in a range of colors and western silhouettes, every pair of boots we're dying to get our hands on this season (from brands like Ganni and Khaite) fall into the go-go category. So while the collections shown at fashion month in February may have predicted eras across the board to show up come fall 2020, for now, we're fully on-board with living in a very mod, very '60s-inspired world — at least when it comes to our footwear.

Click on for 18 ways to add some '60s flair to your boot collection this fall.
