If there have ever been boots that could be classed as cult classic, Clarks Desert Boots are just the thing. They were inspired by the boots worn by British soldiers in the Second World War, and their timeless, authentic design has remained the same for more than sixty years. The first Clarks Desert Boots were designed by Nathan Clark in 1949.
Clarks Desert Boots are made entirely from natural materials like supple suede and soft leather (used for lining / EVA footbed), while the sole is made from genuine crepe. The suede lined counter promotes heel stability and prevents slipping, while the moccasin-like construction adjusts itself to the shape of the foot.
They come in eighteen colours – from black, navy nubuck, tobacco and olive to sand, stone camo and brick red, and you can choose between a suede or leather upper.
Clarks Desert Boots are a great fit and can be worn with both casual and formal clothes, chinos and jeans alike. They are very easy to maintain, and look very stylish and comfortable. Their measurements are: heel height 1 1⁄4 inches, shaft 4 1⁄2 inches and platform height 1⁄2 inches. If you are dead set on buying a pair, note that they are a full size smaller than your average shoe size.
