Desert Boots exemplified the relaxed fashion of the 70’s & they were the perfect footwear to compliment our flared jeans & cheesecloth tops! When new, they looked quite smart, but as they got worn in, rained on & beautifully comfortable, they didn’t age well.
They very soon lost their shape & colour & fast became an eye sore to our parents, but not to us! The older & shabbier they were, the more comfortable they became & fitted your foot like an old pair of jeans! They were so popular, I remember our school allowed us to wear these with our winter school uniforms. Cord trousers & desert boots were very cool!
