Clark’s Original ‘Vinyl’ Desert Boot

View all 3 Photos

The crackle of a record player is an unforgettable sound. That empty white noise just before the music hits, keeping us in anticipation. My turntable is long gone. Even my grandmother’s has been swapped out for an ipod at this point. Still, we can recall the way records made us feel, their big covers decorated with band images we never forget…

During the same time when the records were just nifty playing in every home in America, the staple style of the Desert Boots were also making their debut. It was 1950, the drive ins were all the rave, as well as television tubes, suburbia families, and greasers. Clark’s Original ‘Vinyl’ Desert Boot are supporting Record Store Day on April 20, 2013 taking us on a nice walk back to the nostalgia of those years. In efforts to bring people together to remember and enjoy records, this shoe has been specially released to add to the collectively cool interests of the day.
Basic is best with this classic boot. The upper part of the shoe is genuine leather, fashionable vinyl grooves across the back remind us of their days together. Two lace ups is all you need to support the familiar design lasting since the 50s. Sturdy beige sole is stitched on with just the slightest heel. Buy here
