Men's Monkey Boots

Although the Monkey boot was made famous during WWII as infantry shoes of the Czechoslovakian army, the design is also reminiscent of old-style boxing boots. After the Second World War, the monkey boot moved in two different directions. In the US, makers adopted the design and produced what is referred to as “roofer” style work boots in the 1950s. Here in the UK, various fashion/lifestyle groups chose a short version of the monkey boot as their footwear uniform, well into the 1980s.
