Clarks® Men's Desert Boots

Inspired by the crepe-soled boots worn by British officers during World War II, the Desert Boot pairs supple full-grain leather uppers with a genuine plantation crepe sole to deliver all-day comfort. Designed by Nathan Clark in 1950, this famous boot's 60th Anniversary edition carries the proud tradition forward with a suede-lined counter for enhanced heel stability and a leather-covered EVA footbed that cushions each step and keeps your feet dry. Nature-formed last allows for a natural toe spread. Premium leather upper. Imported.Whole and half sizes: 7-11½, 12, 13, 14. Medium width only.

Could be better,
August 5, 2013
By: alvordal
from Bend, Oregon
"Although nice looking, as with most models of desert boots these days, the crepe sole needs to be a bit thicker and more supportive. It's almost like wearing flimsy slippers. And the toe-box area could be a little more expansive to allow for better wiggle room. All in all, I prefer the "Rough-out Sahara Boot" that Orvis used to sell, but has recently discontinued."

Great shoe,
June 24, 2013
By: Specialist
from Wisconsin
"The shoe/boot I've been looking for. Basic, but quality leather. The plantation crepe sole would surprise a cat burglar. Strong shoe yet light and very smooth to walk or hike with. Molds to your foot after a couple wearing and feels as if it was designed specifically for you. You will not regret this purchase. Clark's has done it yet again. And the Orvis sales person was knowledgeable, patient and very helpful."

"The boot were good, but the laces were of very poor quality. Similar boots and laces purchased in Nairobi were far superior"

"The shoe is strudy. The leather is thick yet very supple and requires no break in. It was a surprise that this shoe is available in a leather that was not brushed leather."

"The orignal and still the best. I have tried imitations, but I like Clarks the best. This is a great comfort shoe and looks good. I recommend applying a water-resistant treatment before wearing. They could improve the laces; I replaced them. Overall, the quality is good, and they are a good value. I recommend these boots!"
