When it comes to iconic footwear, there are few shoes that make their mark quite like the Clarks Desert Boot. This year, the Clarks Desert Boot is celebrating it’s 65th Anniversary and the company are celebrating in style – by launching the Made in England collaboration, a joint effort between the Originals brand and the Charles.F Stead factory.

Desert Boots have always been seen as ‘cool’ every since their inception back in the 50’s. Created by an American, Nathan Clark, the revolutionary design was then handed to the skilled shoemakers in England to produce the boots that would go on to make their mark all over the world.
There will be 1,950 pairs of the limited edition shoes created, reflecting the year that the boots were first available for sale. Each pair is hand numbered and come complete with spare leather laces. We’re proud to be official stockitss of the Desert Boot 65, a true milestone for a fashion collaboration that we know will continue to thrive.
Along with the limited edition design, the Made in England partnership also includes a number of added extras for those looking to add these essentials to their wardrobe.
