30. Moc-Toe Boots
When the Americana movement gained prominence in the middle of the 2000s, sneakers became replaced with boots. Red Wing boots to be exact. Their moccasin-toe construction and thick, wedge sole made them instantly recognizable when stomping the streets, and soon spawned a grip of cheaper, internationally-produced knockoffs. Diehard Americana enthusiasts knew that quality had its price though, and besides, the genuine items were built to last, and also capable of being repaired at the factory after years of abuse.
