" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
The Polo Ranger or “Cookie Boots”
These are the iconic boots that collectors of Ralph Lauren hold in high regard. Cut high above the ankle and with a strap and buckle across the boot.They originally appeared in the 1990’s and had a “Cookie” (or round patch on the outside heel) which was of the ‘Polo Country’ design but have been reproduced recently with a cookie featuring the regular “Polo Player” horse design.This is the version seen here.
The boots come with handmade scale version of a shoe box (using sections of a Polo Ralph Lauren cardboard bag ) and the obligatory tissue paper packed inside.
These are effectively a ‘work in progress’ with details such as the Polo horse on the cookie,size sticker and the gold “Ralph Lauren ” letters on the box to be completed.
