Original 1960s Go~Go Boots I acquired from Canada. Not only are they MOD to the extreme, but if you look at the similar Go-Go Boots in the Metropolitan Museum they bear an extreme likeness - just the fabric was used in the reverse direction. Intentional? I do not know. These artifacts from the 1960s are unmarked as to designer (may be because of the direction of the Fabric?) but the ones in the MET were attributed to "Beth Levine (December 31, 1914 – September 20, 2006) who was an American fashion designer most known for her designs from the 1940s through the 1970s. Under the Herbert Levine label, bearing the name of her husband, Herbert Levine, Beth was the best-known American women's shoe designer from the 1950s to the early 1970s, and was called "America's First Lady of Shoe Design" until her death in 2006". (wikepedia). They are visually remarkable when on display. The inner lining is blue leather. Fascinating find.
