So if you were celebrating 50 years of iconic footwear, what would you do? Well Dr Martens has decided to celebrate this event with a boot-shaped USB drive.
What can we say? well, we can say it looks like the boot that made the company both its name and fortune, a 24-hole boot that opens up to reveal a USB connector for your computer, while the inner boot packs 2GB of storage for any kind of file you need on the go.
The boot is just two inches tall and good for use with both PC and Mac. Price? That' $25 online.

No, this isn't a Doc Marten boot, this is the 1969 Boot, a limited edition piece of footwear produced in limited numbers for Mikkel Rude by Solovair in Northampton.
It's a boot with a heritage. Originally known as Astronaut boots (but no longer as the trademark for that style currently resides in Japan), it's an a 11 eyelet boot with air cushion sole, which is available in black or dark oxblood, with a slimmer silhouette and cleaner finish than the Doc Marten boot of the day.
The long discontinued boot has been remade in those limited quantites and is available to buy from Mikkel Rude while stocks last, priced at £120 per pair. A detail image is over the page.

We're quite keen on Mikkel Rude shirts. Not least because of their excellent fit, great choice of cloths and the ability to stay looking good after a few washes. If you fancy giving them a try, the new range is now available, some of which are pictured here and over the page.
The fit, cut and design are essentially the same, a classic 60s-style button down with fairly high button-down collar, slim fit, box pleat, button sleeve and single breast pocket. Although this year, there are also some long sleeves in the range, as well as some plain colours.
Check out many more pictures over the page. You can buy the new shirts at Oi Polloi in Manchester, American Classics in London, Storm in Copenhagen and Martin C. in Paris, as well as online at the Mikkel Rude website, although the new designs don't seem to be selling on line just yet (keep checking). Prices are around the £65 mark.
