Naturally, all of us at Metropolis Vintage dig The Ramones, but there comes a time when a man needs more than a leather jacket and pair of Converse sneakers. Prefer to class-up your act? Enter The “Beatle” Boot, favored footwear for everyone from The Beatles and The Stones to Nick Cave and The Beasts of Bourbon. Beginning their life and gaining their nickname when The Beatles modified a local Chelsea Boot with a Cuban-style heel, they soon became all the rage in the mid-60’s and were then adopted by many punks of the ’70s and 80’s. Don’t let the “Beatles” tag scare you off – these pointy-toed, high heeled devils look cool with just about anything and also come in handy for self-defense while one is onstage or on the street. Another wild aspect is how they come in a variety of individual styles – some are smooth and space-age looking, while others from the ’70s-era come with interesting decorative stitching patterns and many have a bit of a western motif. We always have a constantly rotating supply here at Metropolis Vintage, but if you’re out of the area, have a look at some of Beatle Boots we currently offering online HERE. You’ll stomp on the competition with that 2-inch Cuban Heel.
