In 1950’s Clarks created a pair of boots – the desert boots. Using British suede from the tannery in Leeds and a crepe sole made with rubber and using a hand carved wooden last. It still is today. Comfortable, sturdy and rather smart looking I doubt they had any idea just how fashionable these boots would become and stand the test of time
We recently were sent a pair to review and I don’t think since my husband first tried them on have they been taken off. Liam Gallagher pretty much wore his Clarks Original Desert boots throughout the whole of 90’s and was rarely seen without them. In fact he was so taken with them he worked with Clarks to create his own design. Bob Dylan, Robbie Williams and even Sarah Jessica Parker are huge fans of the comfort, ruggedness and fashionable boots.
Rory has worn them to business meetings, on a cruise, out to the pub and just for casual walks around. The simple design means they can be worn in any situation. Within three wears they have moulded to your feet and become like gloves. They have become a staple in his wardrobe as they look perfect with jeans & a jacket or styled with a smart suit. Perhaps channel your inner Steve McQueen who was barely seen without his and style with everything!
