This Seventies’ Man has some impressive Boots

In this ad from the early 1970s, we see a man with some might impressive footwear. I can’t help but think it must take him at least an hour each morning to put those things on, which might explain why he has not taken them off. When I see footwear like this, I always think they look more like something from the 1960s, which I…wait….what is that thing on the chair to the right? Is that a person? Some sort of doll? Ahhhh! Why are they just sitting there with that “thing” in their midst???!!
