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, crafted from an innovative vegan-friendly black microfiber, for durability, flexibility and comfort, without the leather. Finished with an unfussy lace fastening, the authentic, sustainably sourced crepe sole completes this distinctive silhouette. Made in Portugal, it's instantly recognizable and forever iconic.Mens sizes shown above. For womens sizes we recommend considering purchasing two full sizes down.
