Desert Boot 4 (25 reviews) Beeswax Mens Originals Boots

In a great new shade for the season, beeswax brown, these classic men's Desert Boots feature the iconic Clarks Originals' design. Created 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 in premium buttery soft leather is 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.

  • 5 stars out of 5Wow. Blown Away.

    George, stockport

    I was dubious whether to buy these, but I decided hey I'll go for it. They are literally the nicest pair of shoes I own - they go with anything, they're built like houses and are so comfortable. Buy them right now.

    Vijay, reading

    These shoes look very nice, and seem to be made of very good quality material. Only annoyance is initially they are slightly uncomfortable, but I have been told after you break them in, they are very comfortable.

    These boots go with chinos and jeans. The shoes are good for hanging out with friends or going out on a date. Versatile boots all around :)

    Barnaby, ipswich

    Having bought a pair of Beeswax Desert Treks many years ago I thought that to shake things up at work I'd invest in the original Desert Boot. Invest is the right word. Treat these puppies right and they won't let you down. Excellent fit and feel. A very versatile boot. Thank you kindly.

    Like all desert boots these are as comfortable as a smile, and the beeswax finish now makes them look as soft and natural as they feel.

  • 2 stars out of 5Size G please.

    I would love to buy these shoes if only you did them in a size G (normal) like the last pair I owned. The narrow fitting (f) just does not fit no matter what size I get. I previously owned a size 9.5 G and they were the most comfortable shoe I've owned. I know I'm not the only customer you have that has asked for size G on these shoes, so any chance you might bring this size back? The Desert boot is an Original classic which was developed by Lance Clark in 1949 keeping true to its Originals shape and look the shoe has changed little since it was created all those years ago. Since its then it’s gone on to sell millions of pairs and is loved by Originals fans across the globe. We do however recognise that its doesn’t fit all foot shapes but as its such a classic we’ve kept it true to its roots and kept the same last shape and fit. However we do offer other G fit variants on the classic in the rest of the range such as the classic Wallabee, Desert Rustler, Vulco Arrow, Vulco Spear and the Natalie styles.

    James , wolverhampton

    I found these boots were not true to size. I am normally an 8 and they were too big so I sized down to 7.5. Now they fit great. Beeswax looks great with jeans, I love them.

  • 2 stars out of 5Overpriced and uncomfortable but look good

    Sarah, london

    These desert boots are made out of particularly hard leather which does not seem to soften significantly with age despite much wear and the application of wax and leather conditioner. When I first started wearing the boots, the hardness of the leather caused blisters on the top of my foot where the shoe flexes when walking. I persisted with wearing the boots because they do look very good and I thought that the leather would soften up over time. Several months of continuous wear down the line, I can confirm that the leather remains hard. Additionally, the boots are completely unstructured meaning that they are not ideal for walking over any significant distances. Lastly, not only are these boots not waterproof, but they seem to positively soak up all the water off the pavement into the wearer's socks, meaning that these boots are completely unsuitable for winter use. Having said all of this, I have really tried with these boots and have worn them a lot in the hope that they would become more comfortable and because I paid a decent amount of money for them. They do also look very good and fashionable - I can't take that away from them. However, in then end, I am forced to conclude that they are overpriced and perpetually uncomfortable. 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.

  • 5 stars out of 5Nice and versatile must-have boots

    YANG, leeds

    I have heard of this boots for a long time, and it is also popular in my country. However, this is my first time to try actually buying them and they didn't let me disappointed. They looks great no matter with jeans and chinos, and the colour of the beeswax one can be automatically slightly change when I am walking which I think is really special and cool. There are a few pitfalls as well, the leather is a little bit hard and your feet need time to get on with it and the heel part is almost straight which means it might be a little misfit when you walk. However, those can not stop them from being a pair of wonderful boots because of their good quality and nice-looking design.

    The Beeswax, Desert Boots, have all the original good looks and style as the suede ones, but also offer a more sturdy boot. Looking forward to putting them through their paces in the coming months!

    Graham, poole

    I'd love a pair of these boots but F is too narrow for my broad feet. I'm sure I'm not the only loyal Clarks customer man and boy who would love these to be available in wider widths.

  • 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...

    Tim, london

    Clarks Desert Boots are my all-year-round shoe, with the leather versions taking me from autumn through to the end of winter. The beeswax version are nice and supple and really take on a nice patina with a bit of wear and tear. Consistently great boots!

    Alasdair, portree

    We live on the Isle of Skye... not many shoe shops here (in fact none). The nearest shops three hours drive away! You're internet postal service, communications and free returns policy (although I did't have to use it) are fantastic and perfect for us in the far north. The shoes themselves, original desert boots, are also 'spot on' look good, fit perfectly and best of all are actually comfortable. Many thanks and well done. Although you may no longer be Quaker owned - please keep operating to their very high ethical andf moral standards. Alasdair Galbraith... one very happy customer.

  • 5 stars out of 5Desert Virgin!

    ROBERT, hastings

    A superb looking pair of Desert Boots, beautiful soft leather that instantly looks worn giving the boots a cool two-tone effect. This was my very first pair of Clarks Desert Boots and I am very impressed. I will definitely be buying another pair soon, would love to see Desert London in this colour. Great fast delivery service to home but would have been nice to try them in my local store first.

    Glenda, ripon

    They may be a man's shoes, but I am a female and wearing them. Why? Because they are made of a beautiful leather with a wonderful finish and they are well-made and supremely comfortable: my favourite jean shoe. Take a hint Clarks and market a women's version.

    Nicest pair of shoes I have! They run big though. If you normally wear a 10, get a 9 for these and so on! Top boots :)

  • 5 stars out of 5Beautiful shoes, perfect for the winter season.

    james, christchurch

    The bees wax finish creates a unique look once the leather starts finding it's natural creases from wear. Super comfy as Desert Boots always are, and winter proof. Classic.
