In credit of the brave, we have the Cuban heel. The Mexican style Chelsea boot is renowned in the Latin world for dancing but dates back to the ninth century when worn by Mongolian horsemen. The boot usually consists of a mid-length shaft and a thick sturdy heel. Their style has been revived in these modern times but with fashion’s 20-year cycle, they were last a trend back in the Nineties, which saw them come to an abrupt end as hip hop and grunge took over the mainstream. These are the most classic men’s distressed boots.
