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.

Kathy Ireland rose to fame as a supermodel in the 1980s and 1990s. She’s best known for appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. She’s gone on to become an entrepreneur and build a multi-billion dollar empire with her brand “Kathy Ireland Worldwide.” Ireland tells Yahoo Life the first model she hired when she started her brand was her mom. “I love representing every shape, size, color and age,” she says. “We’re seeing that more and more and I love that. Everyone wants to be represented and I think that’s important.” She also says that old job description of “shut up and pose” is not acceptable anymore. She encourages women to use their voices. “Do not let anyone or your circumstances dismiss you.”
Olivia Mancuso’s wedding ceremony was truly stunning — a sight to behold in more ways than one.
