What the devil were they called? They had a chunky rubber black sole and were lace up. Just about every student was wearing them around 1994+. Someone out there will have the knowledge.....!

I was so proud of my tall ones with a double buckle across the top.

I had the black shoe ones and a full length pair of boots. I am tempted to revisit as there seems to be a lot of similarly inspired boots around at the moment. It would be wrong wouldn't it? grin
