The British-Made 65th Anniversary Desert Boot

View all 7 Photos

The Clarks Desert Boot is nothing short of iconic; since their release in 1950, the simple suede shoes have become a trusty fashion fallback and a testament to the success of minimal design. To honor the 65th anniversary of what has become a timeless style, Clarks will be making 1,950 pairs of hand-numbered boots — from original sand Cordova Velour 2mm suede supplied by Charles F Stead with the signature orange stitch down detail — right in England. Each “Limited Edition Pack” comes with spare leather laces, hand loomed Lancastrian cotton socks from TRiCKETT, an exclusive crepe suede cleaner, and a print by graphic designer Peter O’Toole. What better way to celebrate decades of excellence in design and craftsmanship? We have no doubt that Nathan Clark would be proud.

Lizzie

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
