    A few pairs of supposedly girlie Monkey Boots being worn by lads in those pictures. :)

    Okay, closer:

    http://theswagger.co.uk/2011/08/02/paul-weller-for-pretty-green-biker-jacket/

    but shorter - it was for birds - and had two chest pockets with press stud fasteners.

    Anyway, I give up. :satisfied:

    I always liked Monkey Boots-where "its Girlie Boots" came from-probably the 2nd lot-was untrue.

    Oh I remember.

    The two girls I mentioned actually came looking to find me - their pal said I was 'cute'. (Should have gone tae Specsavers...)

    But, when they realised how young I was, they weren't interested. (Sad, might have been my first 'threesome'.) :D

    I ran into one of them when I was around 20 - she'd gone all hippy-chick and was living with some chancer in bed-sit land.

    I did like the jackets, though. :nodding:

    Seconded. I had a pair in early 69. I would not have been too pleased with someone calling them 'girlie' - in fact I never saw a girl in a pair.

    Here in the states, they became "girly" because early on you couldn't get docs in small sizes. So girls and young'ns had to wear monkeys.

    I like them too and wear them quite a bit these days. But people constantly say they were boots for girls and early skinheads never wore them. Of course i know that isn't the case.:nodding:

    I think people get confused Harry, they were more popular with girls round my way in the late 70's, a few lads wore them cant recall any big fuss being made of it, other than the odd piss take, bit like i had wearing jnr d'm's

    Monkey Boots acrually got round rhe "No Boots" Ban that was put into place-even though they were classed as Boots.I had a similar reaction to the Work Shoes I wore.:)
