Red Wing Classic Moc Toe 8849
£279, redwinglondon.com

Some trends – like sideburns and Jell-O – are best left in the ’50s, but Red Wing’s Moc Toe boots haven’t aged a bit since 1952. Ideal for work or mooching about the city on weekends… and if the past 70 years are anything to go by, this classic design will still look cool in 2092.

Solovair Black Hi-Shine 6-Eye Brogue
£145, nps-solovair.com

These shiny boots look very much the real deal but don’t contain an inch of cow – just breathable, water-resistant polyester and polyurethane. Northants-based Solovair was born in 1881 and soon got its first break with a government order for army boots. Nobody knew what a vegan was back then.

£100, thenorthface.co.uk

The pull-on Tsumoros do away with fiddly fastenings, which is good news when you need to take the dog out for urgent business. While these boots are great for wintry walks, they’re not waterproof past the generous rubber sole, so don’t even think about trudging through deep snow.
