Desert Boot - Beeswax

Size: 7UK/8US Men's

The Clarks Originals Desert Boot is a unique shoe that carries significant cultural significance and embodies a distinct design philosophy. Created by Nathan Clark in 1950, the design of the Desert Boot was directly inspired by a rugged boot found in Cairo's Old Bazaar. Its minimalist and progressive style sparked a global revolution in footwear, making it a symbol of counterculture and individuality.

The Desert Boot has been embraced by various subcultures and style movements throughout history. It was favored by beatniks, who sought an alternative and rebellious fashion statement. Mods, known for their sharp style and attention to detail, also adopted the Desert Boot as a key part of their wardrobe. British pop bands and Jamaican rude boys further contributed to its popularity, cementing its global reach from Paris to Kingston, Tokyo to London.

Despite the passing of time, every design aspect of the Desert Boot today remains true to the original pioneering pair. Crafted with care, the boot showcases clean lines that accentuate its timeless appeal. Premium beeswax leather is utilized to ensure high quality and durability, while the unfussy lace fastening maintains the boot's simplicity and functionality. The distinctive silhouette is completed with an authentic crepe sole, which is sustainably sourced to align with modern environmental considerations.

The Clarks Originals Desert Boot is instantly recognizable and eternally iconic. It stands as a true original, with a design DNA that sets it apart from any other shoe. Its cultural cachet and enduring popularity have made it a beloved and timeless classic in the world of footwear.
