Desert Trek 5 (25 reviews) Black Mens Originals Shoes

Originally created in the 1970s, this Originals lace-up is still popular today. Recognisable from its characteristic centre seam and crepe sole, this version comes in black smooth finished leather. This style comes in a narrow fit so we advise ordering half a size larger than normal.

    I've just bought my third pair - they just mould onto your feet and your away. The shoe is so simple in design, it is a real classic. Hopefully it will be made for many years to come. If you work and your on your feet for most of the day, then get a pair of these - they are comfort guaranteed.

    Radcliffe from manchester

    These are my second best shoes (the first being my recently purchased Trojan Trek) These shoes are so comfortable. I wear them all day and when I get home from work, I forget to put my slippers on. Well done Clarks for keeping them alive

    Once again outstanding shoe. I brought these as a gift for a friend, and I know he will love them especially as they do not have the orginals in the country he lives in, I know he will get many asking him where he got his Clarks from. Well Done Clarks, continue the good work! I love the man at the back with his sack, it just add an elegance touch to them. The brown makes a nice change from black, will team well with jeans etc.

    I showed off in my Desert Bootys growing up in my teenies. I dated wearing Wallabees all through my twenties. And chilled donning Trekkies relaxing in my thirties. Suede Clarks are for life ...Always have been! Always will be!

    These are by far the most comfiest pair of shoes I have ever worn. Had lots of positive comments about them and would highly recommend them to anyone. They can be worn for either a smart of casual occasion and are essential to any fashion connoisseur.

  • 5 stars out of 5Hey man, nice shoes!

    Nick from twickenham

    I did a very un-bloke like thing a couple of months ago and told a chap in a pub how much I admired his shoes. He had a pair of burgundy desert trek on and very smart they were too. I thought that as soon as the weather turns I'll get me some of those, well the weather hasn't really turned but I got them anyway. Really pleased I did too, they are looking very smart with a pair of sharp bengt nudie jeans and best of all, the girlfriend approves too. Loving the smart but casual look of these and although not quite as popular as the desert boot, as much a classic. Absolutely recommended.

    Can't believe how comfortable these shoes are, fitted like a glove from day one, pity they are not available in brown leather also.

    leon from london

    These shoes are just excellent. I am on my third pair now. They are most comfortable, and as a Class Teacher I find that they easily bare the onslaught from young children - constantly being trodden on.

    Alexander, dundee

    I don't usually write reviews but these shoes deserve one, bought them for work and are an absolute joy to wear, so comfy, warm, feels like floating as you walk. They go great with my black cords for work also. Overall delighted and will be adding the other colours to my new Clarks collection shortly. You will not regret buying these shoes.. go buy them!

    Good shoes but not cheap over here in Malaysia. Strongly recommend this shoe. Not many models to choose from over here and only if mail order can be taken and delivery in Malaysia Clark store.

    jayne from preston

    As the title says! Hubby is on his 4th pair (all different colours). He's rarely seen in anything else. A timeless classic. It's time to start doing the plain leather colours again though.

  • 3 stars out of 5Amazing comfort and style, Very poor durablity

    Karl , prescot

    I loved my Desert Trek Shoes, no seriously I did I uses to take photos of them in various locations while on my feet...some odd stares but who cares.. I wore them constantly and this is where the problem stemmed from..The sole albeit super comfy didn't last longer than 7-8 months. Not sure if this is longer than I should expect a pair of shoes to last but the upper part of the shoe was perfect.. Its a shame I loved em, I even sourced a company who could re sole em but the cost was more than a new pair. I wish Clarks would increase the compound durability on this shoe so they would last longer.. Very nice shoe, loved mine but the wear away on the soles would probably put me off buying a second pair at full price.. Feedback from Clarks: We are very proud of the quality of our products and to ensure this all our new designs and materials are tested before they go on sale.  If you are disappointed with any of our products please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate.

  • 5 stars out of 5a long term test

    robert from brighton

    I absolutely love my desert treks, and suspect mine may have had more 'wear and tear' than most, as I cycle a lot for my work. Despite several soakings and the odd snow encounter, these shoes are still looking great and comfy as a slipper. In fact if anything they have improved with age. I demand a lot from my footwear, and these have fully delivered on all aspects. You will not be disappointed!
