Original vintage pair of prototype boots from 1968 Planet of the Apes. Constructed of leather shaft glued to a latex skinned poly-foam split-toe foot that is molded over a Vans type sneaker. A hard rubber sole is glued to the bottom to complete the form. This style boot did not pass muster given the rigorous physicality of the scenes and eventually gave way to a more robust construction. That this pair survived makes this a fantastic relic of the franchise. Measures 17" tall with no markings. The opening of the pipe is a narrow 16 1/2" circumference. Some damage to the cuff of the right boot, most likely from being stapled or wired together for storage. Otherwise, in very good condition.
