The story of the Desert Boot
Like the white tennis or the brogue, the field of casual shoes counts among its ranks an icon. Here is the story of the desert boot by Nathan Clark. It was in the 1940s when Nathan serves in World War II. There he notices that army officers wear semi-rising shoes during their free time like derbies made of calfskin (suede) and are mounted on comfortable crepe soles.
In 1949, Nathan Clark returned home, and his family was still at the head of the great shoe-making company. He got in touch with pattern specialist Bill Tuxhill to recreate the comfortable shoe. The result is a shoe whose sole is made of two pieces of leather, with a rounded toe and stitched to the famous crepe sole- the desert boot! This model is a hit in France, Italy, and England. The desert boot by Clarks is now a symbol. It is prized by the beatnik in the United States and by the movement Mods in the United Kingdom. Click for voucher codes.
