Clark's Desert Boots And Proper Care Of Them

Updated on August 19, 2017

I remember being about seven years old and owning a pair of Clark shoes. I actually wore them to school all the time. I grew up in the Caribbean so I had the pleasure of wearing shorts everyday to school with Clark shoes. Within the last year I have taken up a strong liking for the desert boot. They're low cut boots with only two pairs of holes for laces. There's a suede insole that makes the inside feel soft and comfortable in my opinion. I use these boots if I'm going to the movies or out on the town. I pretty much wear them with jeans and a t-shirt. I guess I use them for casual applications.

So why are they called desert boots?

The reason they are called desert boots is during world war two the British soldiers used them to fight in the desert. The name desert boot stuck and they have since then been a fashion trend even today seventy years later.

How to take care of the Suede.

To ensure that my boots last a long time and for the suede to look the best, I treat the boots with suede protector first thing even before I put them on. The goal of this is to protect the shoe from water and getting stained. Once I wear the shoes and they get a little dirty, I usually apply some suede cleaner and use the suede brush. This removes all the dirt and give the suede a like new look. The suede cleaner for any color works very well for me.

      These look great. When I saw the picture of them, and the name, I thought of how they would likely cover the ankle from rattlesnake attacks! (They most commonly bite ankles.)
