An American Chimera

Clarks Desert Boot

The Clarks Desert Boot is a brown suede, crepe sole, loose-fitting shoe. It has a laissez-faire vibe stitched in the fabric. This is the shoe that the British Army wore in North Africa during WWII. When worn it is not a shoe or a boot, but somewhere in between. As is with most things derived from military gear it is truly functional. I would have to say that the simplicity of the Desert Boot is what makes it worth owning. This beautiful simplicity is also shared in the design of the Field Jacket, Ruck Sack, Cargo Pant, and countless other things born in Olive drab and Desert Brown.
