Desert Boot 4 (35 reviews) Sand Womens Originals Boots

Soft-to-the-touch suede in a neutral sand shade is a versatile look for our iconic Clarks Originals' women's Desert Boots. Designed in 1949 by Nathan Clark the Desert Boot was inspired by a suede boot from Cairo's Old Bazaar and has been much imitated but never bettered. The simple clean lines are teamed with an unfussy lace fastening and signature crepe sole. This style comes in a narrow fit so we advise ordering half a size larger than normal.

  • 3 stars out of 5Your Desert Boot is my VELD SKOEN a' field walking shoe' in South Africa...

    CELIA from duns

    This 'boot' is usually made in suede leather - so yours is disappointing. It would be worth your while improving the leather quality for lasting ability. Funky colours are fine for 2012 - but the original Veld skoen were made in light and dark brown sued leather. They were worn by men more than women and are still available in South Africa - as the farmers' hot favourite and their sons.....

  • 3 stars out of 5Wish you resized this for my high insteps!

    Sarah from chichester

    I love the look of these boots, and am hoping that they will give a bit;I'm between a 4.5 and 5 so despite the advice on the narrowness of fitting I went ahead and ordered the 5; they are quite long in the foot and a bigger size would have moved about and rubbed too much. Having said that I have them laced up tight to keep my foot in place and they are not as comfortable as I had hoped! Feedback from Clarks: Thank you for leaving a review and we're sorry to hear you didn't find these shoes comfy. We know that everyone's feet are different and so do our best to provide shoes to suit all shapes and sizes but in the end comfort is a personal thing. We value all our customer feedback so thank you for your comments which have been fed back to our team.

  • 4 stars out of 5Very close to the top!

    Dannielle, brighton

    I have purchased many desert boots from Clarks in the past and recently added this pair to my collection. The shoes are the perfect fit, really comfortable and have such high quality. If I had to pin point one element to improve it would be to picture the true colour of the shoes on the website, sometimes the colours are slightly different to what they are when they are delivered/ bought. Other then this imperfection, I would totally recommend these to anyone interested, lovely shoe. Feedback from Clarks: Thank you for leaving a review and we're sorry to hear you felt the colour did not match the website. We try to represent the true colour online as much as possible.

    Mayumi from london

    About 10 yeas ago, I bought the same shoes in Japan and it was very popular at the time. Nice stylish design and comfortable! Finally I replaced with the same shoes and I can't believe that I keep using the same shoes for over 10 years!! I love classic design and it's good price as well. I really highly recommended!!

    J from guildford

    I'd been toying with the idea of buying these boots for a while, and I'm so annoyed I didn't buy them sooner! They're so comfy, probably the only shoes I've ever not got blisters from! Highly reccomend them.

    Ordered half size bigger after reading reviews, they are narrow fitting but like all leather shoes after they have been worn they mould in to the shape of your feet, really comfy boots, look great with jeans.

    I really like these boots and following the advice given by another reviewer I bought a half size bigger to allow for them being only a C fitting which has worked out just fine.

    Marion from petersfield

    classic boot, for me the extra half size up for ordering worked perfectly. Very versatile, but looks really great with boyfriend type jeans. Soooo pleased the tan colour is back, a plain navy added to the colours available would be great. Although they come with matching coloured laces it's fun to sometimes use a contrasting colour to update the look....maybe supply an extra alternatively coloured lace as an option in the box Clarks?

  • 5 stars out of 5Lovely looking desert boots

    jill from sheffield

    These boots are great - desert boots in leather are so much more practical than suede and still look good. The leather is soft and I am hoping it will stretch to a comfy fit as previous Clarks shoes have done. The size does feel a little tight initially.

  • 5 stars out of 5Love my Desert Boots!

    Dorothy from brentwood

    I bought my first pair in the early 1970's! I wore them all the time, as you do when a teenager and they still lasted 7 years. Over the intervening years I have bought these lovely comfy boots and have rarely been without a pair in my wardrobe. I love the tan one's with jeans and the funkier colours with shorts or a skirt. These purple one's are a gorgeous colour and am sure they will give me many years service & pleasure. Thank you Clarks!

    Rosemary from caterham

    Have waited months for these to come back into stock. Worth the wait, gorgeous soft leather and very comfortable. I normally buy the 6 (39.5) and although a 'C' fitting they were the right size for me. Appreciate the fast delivery. Thanks Clarks.

    Susan from colchester

    In this world of hi tech, and fast moving trends, thank goodness some things don't change like desert boots! I've been wearing them since college days and I'm 46 now! It's nice to have something you can rely on. Change isn't always better!

  • 5 stars out of 5Its a good look...

    Shenesea from birmingham

    Clarks Desert Boot is a very unique and diverse boot that can be worn by any gender and fits well. Its comfortable and can be worn to any occasion whether it be formal or informal. Personally, its extremely amazing along with its simple swagg and if you're reading this, you need to get a Clarks Desert Boot A.S.A.P (As Soon As Possible) they're worth it.

  • 2 stars out of 5Inaccurate description online

    Lorna, aberdeen

    These are marketed as "narrow fit". I was delighted when I read this, as I have narrow feet and rarely get boots to fit. However, when they arrived I found that although they are probably narrower than average at the forefoot, they are NOT narrow towards the heel, quite the opposite in fact. Also, I chose "dusky pink" which is, in reality, not dusky pink at all (suggests a greyish pale pink). They are a very bright salmon colour. Shame.

    Gillian from leicester

    I am delighted with my red Desert Boots. They are well made and put together WITH FEET IN MIND!!! Too many shoes today are designed without consideration of human pedal extremities... These boots are stylish, any-age appropriate, and will see me through my holidays and beyond. Thank you for staying true to Clark's Original Quality!

    Maria Io from london

    Classic style, nice fit. Something that may be of interest: I bought my pair in red leather 1/2 size larger, as suggested, while I got my suede pair in my normal size (*not* 1/2 size bigger). I suggest you do the same.

  • 5 stars out of 5Gorgeous boots

    Angela from alresford

    These boots are very comfortable and a gorgeous colour, but advice re cleaning woulod be useful. They are not suede, so you can't brush them; not smooth leather, so you can't polish them. What to do?????? Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for your comments. We do recommend shoe care items that help reduce the appearance of scuffs and scrapes. If you go into one of our stores, they will be more than happy to advise you on our products that should help.

  • 5 stars out of 5Glad I finally took the plunge !!

    William from edinburgh

    I've always admired the looks of Clarks desert boots but somehow or other never actually got round to buying a pair. A couple of months ago I finally took the plunge and bought a pair of the brown ones and was so pleased with their comfort and looks that I've now also bought a black pair, as well as as pair in the more traditional sand colour. They are now a versatile mainstay of my wardrobe suitable for almost all occasions.

  • 2 stars out of 5Desert boot far too small

    Rachel, ashford

    I take either a 4 or a 4.5 with Clarks shoes so I ordered a 4 as the 4.5 were out of stock. I couldn't even get my foot into the boot because of the narrowness of it across the instep. I don't think a 4.5 would have been any use either for the same reason. My feet are not particularly wide as I do not normally need a wide fit - I can't understand why these are made so small.

    Very fashionable boot that never outdates, with a beautiful lace detail! Quite pricey, but worth it. I'll be wearing these for years to come! Order a size bigger though if you are a wide fitting like me!
