Steampunk fashion marries classic Victorian elements with futuristic technology. For men, this means sturdy cotton dress shirts with or without collars, vests, top hats, goggles, high-waisted trousers and more. Footwear may or may not have laces, but they’re usually made of leather and will likely feature buckles and some sort of industrial detailing. There’s a wide range of steampunk boots on the market, so to narrow down your options, we rounded up some of our favorite models for men. Each pair looks quite different yet has neo-Victorian details. We included a tall boot with pockets, a combat style and an ankle boot to suit various preferences.
