Your source of all things Clarks
Hot weather footwear
Clarks shoes and boots (they are actually chukka riding boots) are based on the design of a suede, crepe-soled boot used by the British military officers in World War II. This particular is based on an authentic military shoe and these shoes are comfortable and versatile.
The design of these shoes hasn't changed in over 50 years, although more colors were introduced. Today, over 18 colors are available.
According to many people, these shoes look great with anything, although getting a darker color may be beneficial. (see my review of military desert boots here). I'm sure you will clean and take care of your Clarks, and will not neglect them as much as I did :)
Clarks boots tend to run larger than the advertised size and may stretch, therefore it is a good idea to order a size down. You need to determine the size of your foot, as these shoes tend to be sold only in the Medium (D) size. Make sure you pick the correct size!
A variety of colors
Things have changed
Clarks Original Desert Boots have been around for a while, but are no longer sold in stores. The new re-incarnation of these shoes is thanks to the e-commerce and Amazon.com, re-introducing these shoes to the United States. Fashion, like all things is cyclical...
The current version of Clarks desert shoes are made in Vietnam of suede leather with crepe rubber sole
