Although it can be traced back to medieval times, the polka dot in modern fashion really came to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s. On the 8-Eye Boot, the usual patterning of sized dots is mixed up in differing scales and colors and even differing quarters inside and out, to turn the classic look on its head with a bright, playful contrast. Alternate color spines, unbound top-lines and proudly visible toe caps finish off the look. 8 Eyelet Boot. Black with White Dots Softy T leather. Heel loop.
