#10: Silver-White Boots
The white or silver go-go boot was a blend of two trends: A reflection of Space Age fashions (white/silver representing the moon, stars and outerspace) and the skin revealing styles of the era which required a shoe to cover more leg below for some semblance of modesty.
The thick heel of the boot made walking in one’s mod outfit much easier than the tightly fitted looks with proper heels worn in the ’50s. As women’s fashions became more comfortable, so did their roles in society grow.
