Deja Views: See through boots, 1966 and 2018

The biggest difference between these two pairs of see-through vinyl boots with black patent trim, is that the original c. 1966 pair were around U.S. $13.00. The 2018 pair by Maryam Nassir Zadeh are U.S. $556. (BTW Рthese styles never last long because condensation from the body collects on the inside of the plastic which looks and feels gross.)
