Nancy Sinatra

Nancy Sinatra was always a favorite of mine.  I liked her effortless singing voice.. I remember liking the hit song "These Boots Are Made For Walking" in 1966. I still like the song 'til this day. Well here is a video of one of her performances on TV.

Go Go Boots

A little trivia: Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 hit song, “These Boots Are Made for Walkin,’” helped further popularize go-go boots, and by the end of the 1960s, they were a commonplace wardrobe staple, worn day or night. Their popularity continued into the 1970s.

I remember when I was in 6th grade having a pair of white GoGo boots, which was the fad in the mid-60s. Most of the girls in my class wore them with the fishnet stockings.

Here's Nancy Sinatra singing "boots" on her tour in 2005.

  1. I blew away several younger colleagues when I identified Boots from the opening rift..

    I was born in 1947 and grew up in the 50's. Wasn't it a grand time to be a kid? My neighborhood in Boston was right out of an Our Gang comedy.

    My first Go Go boots were solid, no laces. Now I have 'em in RED.
