I used to own 2 pairs of Zodiac Boots. One pair was tan suede knee high scrunch boot. The other was a pair of soft leather knee high steel toes. Both pairs were awesome. I wish I could have them again. By the way they were high dollar boots, not cheesy cheap ones.

I have been scouring the internet for a pair of boots I had. They were "Sandra" by Zodiac. Ivory leather, wood stacked heel, mid calf cuff boot. The most comfortable boot I have ever owned that lasted YEARS. If anyone knows how I can get a

I still have my pair. The upper is in awesome shape but the leather soles wore out quick. I've hung on to them thinking that maybe they'd come back in style. Now I just need to get them resoled. SOOOO comfortable & yes expensive.

In the mid 80's I bought myself a pair. They were tan suede, knee high w/feather pheonix inlay and silver tips. They were a divorce present to me and were destroyed years ago, but I found the exact pair on ebay last year for $25. Originally paid well over $100. I have at least 10 pair of boots and these are still #1...

I have a pair on Ebay right now that I'm selling, they are AMAZING! I would totally keep them but alas they are one size too small. They are brown scrunchy/slouch leather with real feather trimmed harnesses and metal details with roses, they are probably the best boots I've seen in ages! Check out my shop to see 'em!

I had a great pair of Zodiacs. I got them at a little store near the UCLA campus in 1979. They were Electric Blue with a faux fleece interior. The thing about them was that they were so practical in Oregon yet they were about the sexiest pair of boots that I've ever owned. times

I have owned at least 25 pairs of Zodiac boots. They were the best boots Ihave ever owned. I still have about 5 pairs hanging out in my closet. Some have fairly worn heels. I have never found another pair of boots that were that comfortable.

I had 2 pairs of Zodiac boots and about 7 pairs of their shoes. They used to be made in New Hampshire but were bought up by some big shoe conglomerate. It's really hard to find the boots nowadays, and impossible to find the shoes. I wish they'd start making them again, the style is actually back. I still have a pair of my Zodiac shoes from 1984, still in great shape. I've since gotten rid of the others I had.

@5 years ago, I found a pair of knee high eel skin Zodiac boots that were to die for. I coveted them for months but just could not afford to buy them. I finally received them as a gift - I think for my high school graudation. I wore them often but took excellent care of them. When the styles changed and time came to give up all the cowboy boots in my closet, I just could not bring myself to get rid of the Zodiac - even after my foot had grown a full shoe size. Now my daughter, who just graduated from high school herself, has decided she really wants a pair of western boots. We went shopping but didn't find anything that fit the bill. I told her to check out the Zodiac boots in my closet and she was in love! Unfortunately, the lining has deteriorated making them even more difficult to put on than they were back when I wore them but she's willing to put up with it in order to look really, really cute!

Man this takes me back! I had several pairs of boots and shoes, starting in 1980. A co-worker (very stylish) had a pair of sandals; I admired them greatly and noted the Zodiac logo when she kicked them off. I tracked them down to a trendy shoe store -- yikes! expensive for poor broke me. But I wanted them soooo bad, and finally got a pair of low heeled navy blue pumps, with little bows (this is about 1981), wood heels. AMAZING old world craftsmanship -- I collect vintage -- old Zodiacs are the equivalent of the best crafted vintage 20s-50s bench made shoes -- linings, leather soles, hand stitching. Plus, they were amazingly comfortable! I still have these shoes, and though worn, they are very cool. Later I acquired some others, and two pairs of boots, one high heels cowboy boots and the other English riding boots, with a braided anklet. AWESOME. But sad -- between age 24 and age 34, my stupid feet got about 1/2 size larger. No way to stuff these big honkers into those narrow boot shafts. I still miss 'em. They do make some shoes under the Zodiac name, BUT are not made in the USA and nowhere like the 80s quality...GREATLY MISSED.

I was hoping they still manufactured boots! They were soft good quality leather and were very fashionable. Had a pair with 4 inch heel,. soft tan leather and embossing on side with Peace symbols and had rawhide tops . They had pointed toes but not too pointy similar to cowboy Funny what goes around comes around! Sept 10 09 To date this historical reminisent moment in time!

I had at least 6 pair. Got my first pair at a little boutique in Lake Tahoe - now a big store at stateline in a shopping center with a grocery store. The secret was to but them a size or so larger than you normally wore so that you could "sit back" in the heel. I still have a pair of white leather cowboys that are too small for me. They were too small when I got them but I HAD to have them and I tried to stretch them. Anyone interested? I also have spike heeled low pink, knee high buff colored and grey suede and my favoite brown alligator. LOVE THEM do they still make them?

In 1990 I found a pair of Zodiak boots at the thrift store for $3.75. They were like brand new and the best boots I've ever worn in my life. I totally wore them out. My friend used to tell people "Do you believe it, she paid three seventy five for those boots" They actually thought he meant dollars. I give anything to have those boots back

I found a great pair of Black and Red Knee High Zodiac boots at my local thrift store, and what a find! Unfortunately, they're one size too small for me. I did however purchase them and am listing on ebay at a low price with no reserve so if you're looking for that pair from years past, these may be the ones, check em out.

Lucky me I lived Rochester NH where Zodiacs were made. I still have all my boots & shoes. My lucky daughter (now 14) just discovered them in my closet. Her classmates & teachers are all complimenting her new footwear.

I have been on the search for a specific pair of zodiac boots that i fell beyond head over heels in love with. They are the tall black boots with the eagle inlay. I can't find them anywhere!
Linda - March 16, 2010 - Report this comment
Zodiac had an outlet store in NH and I used to drive over to see what was available, almost always finding some nice boots at a good price. The thigh highs are still my favorite and they are still holding up after 20 years. One pair of black thigh highs has seen lots of mud and water on the 4-wheeler, but I always cleaned them and put the Zodiac leather protector on them asap. I can still stand thigh deep in water in them with no leaks...looking good in my leather waders!

Zodiac made a lot of shoe styles popular in the 80s, not only boots. I remember a lot of jazz oxford-looking shoes by them, too; in fact, that was the first memory that came up when I heard the name again.

I am a UK wearer who has discovered Zodiac cowboy boots over the last few years, and can't get enough of them. Only the cowboy ones, with the proper leather soles and heavy stacked slanting wooden heel. I have a few variations, mostly purchased on eBay, but am still looking for the perfect pair - vintage mid calf hard nubuck leather, distressed dark brown with heavy stitching to the upper section and trademark soft coloured lining. If anyone has any in a US 9 - please get in touch.

You know, they made Zodiac boots for men, as well. I have at least 10 pairs that my mom and aunt had bought for me on holidays and special occasions. I still wear them today and get tons of compliments. They hold up so well.

I had about 6 pair in the 80s. Some were destroyed in a basement flood but a couple remain. I first bought them in Lake Tahoe at a boutique in Stateline. The girl convinced me to but a larger size than I would normally wear so than my weight would "shift back into the heel" LOVED them...actually found something similar at a MEIJER'S store but of course not real leather, but I remembered her advice and bought big. Had a pair of white Zodiac cowboy boots that were way too small and having been a dancer and having sometimes soaked my pointe shoes in alcohol or water and let them dry onmy feet to mold them...I did this with the boots...and it worked!

My HS BF's father was the head designer of Zodiac shoes/boots. I blame them entirely for my love of expensive shoes! I still have some that Al designed for me way back when! I LOVE them!

Had 2 pairs in mid 80s. They were about $150 ea which was a hardship. Softest boot leather I've ever felt. Comfortable & wore very well. 1 pair was a reddish-brown below the knee cuffed w a leather & metal "spur" around the ankle. The other were dark gray low calf slouch boots w a "belt" around the ankle. The heels on both were a veener of rougher leather in matching color over a plastic base.

Me and my sister were talking about boots today, and I'm an 80's girl and I mentioned my favorite boots were my Zodiac's, she is 10 years younger than and she remembers me wearing them. Those boots were extremely expensive at the time but I LOVED them. I worn those boots all the time so much that I broke the heel (I'm a heavy walker lol) and tried to have the heel fixed twice but the local shoe repair man could never get it right. They were knee high, cream colored with silver/gold embellishment on the shin and silver tips, beautiful boots!!!
