CLARKS ORIGINALS 65TH ANNIVERSARY DESERT BOOT - MADE IN UK

We live in times where a first generation X-Box is, unironically, called historical. But, when we say Clarks is a historical company, we mean that in the truest sense of the word. The original business partnership between Cyrus Clark and, his cousin, James, dates back to 1821. For perspective, that would be the same year that Napoleon died.

It seems peculiar that a company started by Quaker businessmen during the Georgian era would be known for its pop culture associations rather than, say, its old-fashioned quality, workmanship, but the youthful associations of some iconic Clarks styles remain a driving force behind the brand to this day.

The most famous Clarks shoe of all, the Desert Boot is an adaptation of a locally produced style of boot in Cairo that was popular amongst British officers stationed there during World War II. The design, a suede, ankle length silhouette with a crepe sole, is simple but instantly recognizable.

The special edition, 65th Anniversary Desert Boot utilizes suede from the Leeds based Charles F Stead factory, the original suppliers of material for the Clarks Desert Boot. This handcrafted edition is limited to 1,950 pairs.
