We take a look at some iconic boots from across the decades, from the psychedelic patterns of the 60s to the grunge-inspired 90s...



1960s

The swinging 60s introduced psychedelic patterns and colour-clashing styling. These boots from Roger Vivier are a wonderful example, summing up the decade in a single item!

Whilst the colours are more muted these days, you can still find this over-the-knee style on the catwalks and high street today. Take a look at our Curve boots for a wearable, up-to-date version of this classic style.





1970s

When we think about the 70s, one of the first things that instantly spring to mind is.... the platform. And these boots certainly fit the brief! Look at these icons from the archives of the Freemans catalogue!

Whilst these may remind you of our Siren boots in Tan Leather (if you’re familiar with our collection) don’t worry – Siren don’t have the platform sole!





1980s

The 1980s saw everything from slouchy to cowboy in boot fashion. But suede was definitely the material of choice, and the flat styles were most popular with the fashionistas of the day. Not too different from our best-selling Raven or ever popular Fuller styles....




1990s
 

The grunge inspired styles of the 90s are certainly carrying on through to today. This shot from 1992 shows the beautiful Helena Christensen posing for photographer Fabrizio Ferri for Marie Clare Italy.

For the re-booted (sorry – couldn’t resist!) version of these classic lace ups, look no further than our very own Marvel in Tan or Black Leather!
