The quintessential leather ankle boot with elastic side panels conquered the world with the 60s mod scene but date back to the Victorian era. Those naughty-but-nice lads The Beatles famously wore them in the UK, but bands like Velvet Underground picked up on the style and gave them an edgier rep. Not to be confused with the Cuban heel – a more raised ‘cowboy boot-style heel – as favoured by Prince and other shorties.

The term ‘brogue’ refers not to a shoe’s shape but the pattern of small circles cut into the leather, thought to have been developed in Ireland in the 16th century as a means of draining the shoes of water when walking in bogs. ‘Oxford’ or ‘Derby’ brogues defines the style of lacing, not the pattern. As for when they can be worn. Well, at any time these days, though super-posh types may frown upon them at Black Tie affairs. Whatevs.
