Battling to find time for a decently-sized post, but in the interim I thought I’d share this image, from the Guardian newspaper in the UK, dated Sept 9, 1977. From left to right across the top we have: calf boot in natural leather with sheepskin lining (Bally); “Wellie Warmers” shiny boot with attached multistoried leg warmer (Medway); Flat rust leather riding boot with sheepskin lining (Saxone); Leather & canvas gaiters plus lace up ankle boot (Walkers); Red stacked heel ankle boot (Sacha); calf-length leather and fur boots (Marks & Spencer); black soft ankle boot (Graeme Hinton); leather stirrup boot in black or brown (Marks & Spencer); beige suede & leather boot (Bally); and thigh-length white sheepskin patchwork boot (Medway). The one in the middle is a brown suede knee-length lace-up boot (Saxone). As it says in the accompanying article, the choice of boots at the peak of their late seventies popularity was enormous.
