This all feels like all a load of our mates have been to a dead good party that we weren’t invited to but then the next day they turn up on our doorstep all smiles proffering up the best pair of desert boots ever made in their talented little hands.
So yeah, to celebrate the noble desert boot’s 65th anniversary Clarks Originals have put together an A Team of Northern talent with artwork provided by the steady-handed genius of Peter O’Toole, matching socks from lancs legend Trickett and a handy suede cleaner in superb Sheffield steel from my main man Mamnick to accompany a limited edition pair of premium, hand numbered, Made in England desert boots. This ultimate desert boot in their original sand Cordova Velour 2mm suede and orange stitch detail are, it’s fair to say pretty damn amazing even without all the wonderful added extras. I just hope that when they next decide to do a top of the range Desert Rain or Weaver boot that they’ll ask me to pen them a jubilatory reggae song in their honour or something along those lines. Well done everyone you’ve actually managed to make a design classic even better.
