"A sensible pair of shoes"

Acrylic on canvas       77cm x 60cm (framed)

These shoes need no introduction.  Essential Mod Footwear Originating from the Forties/Fifties British Army Desert Boots, the Boots first became fashionable in the Fifties and early Sixties in Beatnik Culture.
They were later adopted by Sixties Mods who wore them as part of both smart and casual clothing outfits.
Desert Boots carried on through to the Mod Revival era of the Seventies and Eighties becoming a true Retro Mod Classic.

" The canvas loves me painting it and the shoes love the publicity"
