Cultural cachet and design DNA: no shoe is quite like the Clarks Originals Desert Boot. Nathan Clark’s 1950 design 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 white leather hand dipped in silicone rubber, for a natural edge and unique artisinal finish. An unfussy lace fastening and authentic, sustainably sourced crepe sole completes this distinctive silhouette. Instantly recognisable, forever iconic. A true original.
