HISTORY OF THE MONKEY BOOT:
The Monkey boot was made famous during WWII and worn as standard issue military boots of the Czechoslovakian army. Their durability and practicality made them the ideal boot for the foot soldier.
The design is also reminiscent of old-style boxing boots. After WW II, the monkey boot moved in two different directions. In the US, shoemakers adopted the design and produced what is referred to as “roofer” style work boots. In the UK, various fashion/lifestyle groups chose a short version of the monkey boot as their footwear. They remain hugely popular in Japan and the US among certain fashion circles, and in denim/heritage clothing communities.
