Description

A wonderful unworn pair of Mary Quant 's 'Shiners - Zip', a chisel-toed plastic zip up boot from her Quant Afoot range, launched in 1967. They come with original cardboard box, and also original carrier bag with Mary Quant logo. Labelled a UK 5, do check measurements as they may come up a little small.

I believe they are injection moulded plastic, over a jersey (cotton?) fabric? Heels are transparent, with the Quant daisy logo imprinted on the base and visible from the side. The insoles are also printed with the daisy logo.

They fasten to the side with brass zips and circular pulls. The material beneath the plastic is actually a (very 60s.. reminds me of formica table tops!) fine graphic two tone print, rather than a block colour. Colour is referred to as 'Chestnut' on the box. (Apparently the colours in the 'Quant Afoot' range were chosen by Mary, to match her Autumn 1967 clothing collection).

A really iconic and collectable piece of British fashion history (and I really try not to overuse phrases like that..), which are luckily a size too small for me to justify keeping!

Measures: Labelled a 5 on both box and sole

They measure approx. 10" along the insole toe to heel, and 3 and 1/4" across the outer ball of foot at widest point. Bear in mid this is down to the chisel toe, so probably more like a 9.5" insole max.

The heel is approx 1' high, and the back of the boot is another 4" from insole to ankle.

Make: Mary Quant

Condition: These are unworn old stock, and the boots themselves are in very good to excellent shape. The soles are unmarked, and boots have no signs of wear overall. The carrier bag is unused.

The only minor points to note are:

-a tiny bump in the moulding which looks like a manufacturing flaw (I'm pointing to it)

- the fact that the glue holding down the printed insoles has dried so they curl a little at the edges.

- there is some slight age related pitting to the brass circle zip pull

- the shoe box is showing it's age slightly from storage, but still intact and useable with original design no and style etc label.

You can watch the launch of the Quant Afoot range on film here - look out for this design held aloft!
