Desert Boots Made In England
Clarks Originals celebrates the 65th anniversary of the Desert Boot with a special ‘Made in England’ collaboration which sees the Originals brand and the Charles. F Stead factory come together to create a handcrafted, limited-edition iteration of the iconic boot which heroes the artisanal skills at the centre of British style today. After Nathan Clark stormed America with his revolutionary Desert Boot design in the early 1950s, it was to the highly-skilled shoemakers and tanners of England that he turned to produce the boots which would go on to become signifiers of cool around the world.
Each of the 1,950 pairs – a number chosen to reflect the year when the boots first hit the market – of ‘Made in England’ Desert Boots are hand-numbered and come with spare leather laces. The collaboration honours the unique partnerships forged by Clark which are still integral to the Desert Boot 65 years on.
