Cultural cachet and design DNA: no shoe is quite like the Clarks Originals Desert Boot. Nathan Clark’s 1950 creation was inspired by a rough boot from Cairo’s Old Bazaar, and its minimal, progressive style sparked a worldwide footwear revolution – worn by beatniks, mods, Britpop bands, and Jamaican rude boys, from Paris to Kingston, Tokyo to London. Every design detail today remains true to that first pioneering pair – here, the boot’s crafted, clean lines are enhanced with velvety soft Merlot kidskin suede, finished with an unfussy lace fastening. The authentic, sustainably sourced Forest Stewardship Council®-certified crepe sole completes this distinctive silhouette. Instantly recognizable, forever iconic. A true original.
