Description (Brief)
These boots were worn at Wrestlemania 24 (2008) by professional wrestler Ric “the Nature Boy” Flair during the presumed final match of his 36 year career. Flair, born Richard Morgan Fliehr (1949,) began wrestling professionally in 1970 as part of the American Wrestling Association. He survived a broken back in 1975 to star in the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA,) and later spent time as a top attraction for both the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW.) Flair finished his career with the industry powerhouse WWF, now known as the WWE, or World Wrestling Federation/ Entertainment, returning to the league in 2001. One of professional wrestling’s most charismatic and talented performers, Flair played both hero and villain, and was awarded dozens of championship belts over the course of his career..
