The idea of a woman’s mainstream fashion boot was revolutionary.
Before the introduction of go-go boots, women’s boots were generally worn during only inclement weather, rugged activities, or horseback riding, but not as street shoes.
This new style of footwear was designed to complement the shorter hemlines of the new, modern look.
Go-go boots drew attention to the legs, accentuated the simple A-line silhouettes but also offered some modest coverage for the less daring but fashion-minded women.
André Courrèges is often cited as the originator of the fashion go-go boot: a low-heeled, calf-high boot made of white plastic with a clear cut-out slot near the top was featured as part of the “Moon Girl” look featured in his Fall 1964 collection.
Manufacturers began mass-producing runway knock-offs in contemporary colors and materials.
These knock-offs were extremely popular with teenagers, who could be seen wearing go-go boots on both the street and television dance shows.
They were often seen worn by "Dolly Birds" in London during the 1960s.
Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 number-one pop hit "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" helped popularize go-go boots, and the Space Age boots worn by Jane Fonda in 1968’s science fiction film Barbarella were a nod to their erotic past.
Other designers (including Mary Quant) designed their own versions of go-go boots. As hemlines rose, so did the height of the boot, and the heel height dropped proportionately, cumulating a pair of thigh-high garter boots designed by Yves St. Laurent which clipped up underneath the tiniest of skirts. Fashion trends progressed and as women’s trousers and maxi-length skirts where only the foot showed became popular, legs were de-emphasized. By the early seventies, go-go boots were referred to simply as boots, and the emphasis shifted to the height of the heel and the development of the platform.

Nancy Sinatra had a transatlantic number-one pop hit in 1966 with "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", which showcased her provocative but good-natured style, and which popularized and made her synonymous with go-go boots. The tantalising promo clip featured a big-haired Sinatra and six shapely young women in tight tops, go-go boots and mini-skirts, and is considered a classic example of high camp. The song was written by Lee Hazlewood, who wrote and produced most of her hits and sang with her on several duets, including the critical and cult favorite "Some Velvet Morning". Between 1966 and 1967 alone, Sinatra charted with 13 titles, all of which featured Billy Strange as arranger and conductor. In 1967 she paired with her father for her second number-one single, "Somethin' Stupid".

 • Go-go Boots vs. Kinky Boots
Go-go boots share some history with the UK’s “kinky boots”, a style of calf- to knee-length pull-on black leather boots with 3-4 inch heels and pointed toes. The term “kinky boots” referred to the style’s Dominatrix and fetish origin and alludes to the perception that women in boots are powerful (i.e. like a Dominatrix.) Kinky boots broke into mainstream UK fashion in the early sixties and were seen on Honor Blackman and Diana Rigg in the original "Avengers" television series.

 • Thigh-length boots
Thigh-length boots, known also as thigh-high boots or simply thigh boots, are boots that extend above the knees. Other synonyms include over-the-knee boots, and especially when cuffed, pirate boots. Lengths vary from reaching just over the knee to reaching almost to the crotch (referred to as crotch boots). Like all boots, thigh boots are made of different materials ranging from various leathers, to various synthetic materials (vinyl, polyurethane, or latex), to various fabrics (silk, polyester microfiber). Many are constructed with zippers for ease of entry, but some are constructed as pull-on boots. Heel heights vary, but the majority are sold with heels greater than three inches (7.5 cm). Heel styles vary from metal spikes to chunky. Thigh boots are considered by many to be erotic or kinky. They are used as fetish clothing in boot fetishism and shoe fetishism. They are frequently associated with sadomasochism. They are often worn by prostitutes and professional dominatrices, so many people consider them icons of such trades. Nevertheless, they are frequently sold by couture designers, perhaps because of the implied eroticism.
