Desert Boot 5 (61 reviews) Sand Mens Originals Boots

Our iconic Clarks Originals' men's Desert Boots are reinvented in a neutral sand shade of authentic English suede. Designed in 1949 by Nathan Clark the Desert Boot was inspired by a rough boot from Cairo's Old Bazaar. An instant hit, it became the footwear of choice for off-duty army officers. Often imitated, never bettered, its simple, clean lines are teamed with an unfussy lace fastening and the signature crepe sole. This style comes in a narrow fit so we advise ordering half a size larger than normal.

  • 5 stars out of 5The iconic desert boot is still the best.

    george from southsea

    Ive been wearing clarks desert boots for over a year now and they are my favourate shoes to wear. They are so versatile its almost annoying because you neglect every other piece of footwear you own. They come in so many colours theres not an outfit they wouldnt work with. As for comfort they are somewhere in between slippers and soft trainers. The pair I have in waxed canvas are so light and flexible I sometimes forget im wearing shoes. If I was to reccomend any item of footwear it would be the clarks desert boot.

  • 5 stars out of 5Still the best Desert Boots around!

    Olivia from wolverhampton

    I bought a pair of these for my partner a couple of months ago and he loves them! They look great and the leather is softening beautifully. He does not have the best feet in the world and often stuggles with new shoes but these have been comfortable from day one. There may be others on the market but I think Clarkes Desert Boots are the 'Originals' and the best!

    Chris from twickenham

    I bought my first pair of Clarks Desert Boots in 1963 and most of my friends also had a pair. As far as I`m concerned they have never gone out of style and the quality of the DBs I have just bought is as good now as they were 48 years ago.

  • 5 stars out of 5Sizing advice

    Duncan from cambridge

    These are quite long and narrow shoes. If you generally have wide feet you may find if you go up a size like people recommend that your toes will have too much room around them to feel comfortable - that was my personal experience. Otherwise they are good shoes.

  • 5 stars out of 5sizing

    Frazer from london

    Make sure you go a full size up from your normal size if buying the desert boot. I've owned a few pairs in the past and always bought size 9. The site does reccomend to go up half a size but i bought my usual 9 and they were way too small. Must have changed the fit? It was easy enough to change them in store though and i went for a size 10 having tried the 9 1/2 which were still too tight. Must have changed the fit? Great shoe though, goes well with most outfits. Also make sure you spray protect these particuarly in this colourway!

    Ordered on the Friday, received the following Monday, free delivery - first class service! I've long been a wearer and fan of desert boots, including in the Arabian Desert, and these are no exception. High quality soft leather and the classic crepe soles. Comfy from the outset, they will even improve with wearing, I'm sure. Recommended.

    Boots arrived today and im very pleased with them. Great looking and perfect fit. They are a bit darker than the image shown but i knew this anyway. The website recommends going 1/2 size up, i was recommended to go 1/2 size down. Im usually a 9 but ordered 8 1/2, perfect fit.

    Mark from southampton

    I've always appreciated the quality of product and service from a genuine Clarks shop. I ordered a pair of desert boots on line for covenience and my local shop handled the return and re-order for the next size up (not in stock in that colour but they found a different colour to try on). Very cool boots that I know will last.

    These are my first new pair of Desert Boots in a long time and they haven't changed. My last pair was bought in the heady days of Britpop in the 1990's! A family and career in the meantime for me and you realise what makes a true staple for your wardrobe. Classic style and comfort and wearable in almost any occasion.

    What can I say? I have loved Clarks Desert Boots since way back when. Just bought my second pair and I am out to get the set! Comfortable, timeless style; often copied but there is nothing like the original, and classic, Clarks Desert Boot. A footware icon - a pair should be in the British Museum!

    Finlay from norwich

    I received my desert boots this morning. They are fantastic - made with very high quality leather, making them stylish and comfortable. The half size option allows for a precise fit - they have already moulded to my feet and the soles add cushioning. If you are considering buying a pair of desert boots, don’t buy a cheap mimic pair. These are well worth the extra money.

  • 5 stars out of 5Great product with extra efficient service

    Andrea, ixelles

    I was not sure if buying online these shoes since it is my first pair of clarks and I usually never buy shoes online, as I need to try them on first. However, I found the size guide very useful and since I have no store close to my place, I placed the order. It arrived earlier than expected. I was not available at home and calling the customer service I arranged another day for the delivery. As far as the product is concerned, I found it very confortable. I like the style and the colour. It really fits my look. To sum up, I am already thinking about the next model to buy...

    DEBORAH from dereham

    These are a complete classic. Comfortable, good choice of colours and good old Clarks quality. Agree that they are narrow so you need to go half a size up. They are a little long in the length of the foot but that is just getting picky!

    I've had both Clark's and cheap imitation desert boots and there is nothing like the original. Comfortable from day one and they only get better with time. More expensive than the others, but they last 3 times as long so work out cheaper in the end.

  • 5 stars out of 5Don't think twice

    Nathan from stockport

    Honestly, I don't do reviews much. Unless the product's especially poor or especially fantastic. Clarks Desert Boots are definitely the latter. Not only do they look fantastic, they're surprisingly comfortable and mould nicely to your feet. They work with jeans, chinos and probably even shorts. Just the right height, good ankle support and tidy laces with a timeless style. The sole is hardwearing and reduces impact, making them distinctly comfortable for such a smart boot and the suede is pretty tough and long-lasting.

  • 5 stars out of 5Dancing Shoes

    Jeremy from london

    I wear Clarks because I favour classic styles from brands with a strong heritage. I'd worn Wallabees for years but wanted to give Desert Boots a spin. (I have to admit I was partly inspired by the cool film icons of the 1960s, who rocked this shoe so elegantly.) I remember a friend from school saying the best way to break in a new pair of shoes is to take them dancing. Well, I got the perfect chance when I attended a jet set wedding in Hong Kong... I took to the dance floor in a fitted suit, knitted tie and my new sand coloured Desert Boots. I have to say I was quite a hit. I told people it was the shoes. I broke them in properly, and they definitely feel like mine now.

    This is the third pair of Desert Boots I have owned, the last pair lasting nearly 4 years and were well worn; so hence a new pair as a treat! These are incredibly comfortable and look great for casual and smart occasions. In my opinion the build quality is excellent and they even look good as they age. Don't hesitate to buy.....you will not be disappointed!
