On November 17, 1963, Nancy made her debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing “Old Straw Hat” and “Hey Good Lookin'” with her then-husband, musician Tommy Sands. Nancy was a cheerful neophyte dressed in overalls and a plaid shirt. On February 27, 1966, a blonder Nancy made her second appearance, newly unmarried and prepared to face the crowd. She played “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” her number-one single, on a funky stage with go-go dancers (in boots of course).

Some songs just make you want to sing along every time you hear them. Another one of those enchanted tunes is “These Boots Are Made For Walkin.” This song became the top tune of 1966 after its release. The catchy song by Nancy Sinatra became a hymn for Vietnam War soldiers as well as for ladies. In a less significant way, her wardrobe for the record and her public appearances made white go-go footwear the trend at the time.

There’s a good reason why so many people still enjoy this song today! This was one of the six songs Sinatra sang on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967. Watch as she gives a live performance of one of our favorite songs, complete with dancers and props like huge boots! Look at what’s underneath you. In addition, this place offers an amazing performance from the 1960s.
