Have a look at these then. Rockport have jumped on the heritage bandwagon and are celebrating their New England roots with a collection of pretty decent boots for the winter.
Started in 1971 by father and son duo Saul and Bruce Katz (strong names) the brand are celebrating their 43 years in the game with five styles, all nodding back to their original items. This is the Eastern Empire Chukka - a hard wearing simple boot that'll give a massive wanker sign to puddles during the 11 rainy months we enjoy in the UK.
Available from Rockport.com priced at £150
