Ethan is one of Tricker’s most iconic Monkey Boots.
The history of the humble Monkey Boot dates back to World War 2, worn as standard issue by the Czechoslovakian army, their durability, practicality, and the fact they were inexpensive made them the ideal boot for the foot soldier.
After disappearing for a couple of decades, the Mods gave them a new lease of life in the 60s and 70s. The Monkey Boot soon became part of their fashion stable along with the Harrington Jacket and Levi’s jeans. In the late 70s and 80s, they were adopted by Skinheads, Punks and students. We have been making our own version of the Tricker's Monkey Boot for quite a few years. The most popular market until recently has been Japan where the desire for English apparel is very strong.
This edition features 9 eyelets in total.
