8. Timberland 6-Inch Premium Boot 

You usually hear these referred to as "constructs," as they were traditionally worn by construction workers. The wheat ones have been a staple for some time, as have the black suede ones, with the latter gaining traction again among '90s babies. It should be noted that when you refer to constructs, you're referring to the more expensive model with the opaque gum sole.
