The Clark's Men Desert Boot was born in the sands of North Africa, worn by the British forces during the Western Desert Campaign of World War II. That means it's a venerable 70 years old, but for some reason it's not showing its age. That's because timeless design and relaxed comfort never go out of style.
  • Suede style features textile lining offers against-the-skin comfort; leather styles unlined for breathability
  • Natural crepe rubber sole offers cushioning and durable wear

uncomfortable

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Hard to believe these are so highly recommended. I tried the beeswax leather version, and the material was extremely stiff and rubbed uncomfortably above the ankle. The natural crease point above the toes as you walk flexed painfully into my foot. The shoe was sized well and *fit* just fine, but these were some of the most painful shoes I've ever tried on.

Classy Casual Shoe

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

These are great! You can dress them up with a nice pair of pants and shirt, or wear casual out for the night. I got these for the man as a casual work dress shoe, and we both like them A LOT. He is a standard street size 10.5, with a little more of a narrow profile foot. I got the 10.5 in these for him, and they are the perfect fit. They seem to work best with a more boot-cut pair of jeans, but they aren't too bulky around the ankle which is great. I will definitely be getting him more of the Clarks, they are BOMBER!

Size down

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large

I gave these as a gift, and was glad I followed other reviewers' advice: size down one size. The shoe is sleek looking and can be dressed up and down. It was a great buy.

Best Autumn Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This shoe is the best for the fall. Great look. You can wear it to work, out to the clubs, or a quick weekend get-a-way with your gf's fam!

Lady Killer.

Solid and simple design make this a go to for a casual dress boot. The sole is comfy and only gets better with time, as does the leather. I am a 9 in most shoes and this was no exception, the 9 fits me great.

Amazing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

First off, these boots are comfortable. I first wore them a couple days when I was walking to and from place to place for hours. Probably 7-8 miles and my feet felt fine. Make sure to size down a full size though, I went down from a 12 to an 11. They also go with any pants and can be worn anywhere with anyone. Their versatility means I can legitimately wear nothing but these shoes for a week or more without feeling weird. Fantastic.

Classic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

The Clark's Desert Boot is a classic, and the beeswax leather is icing on the cake. The boots run large, and I'd recommend sizing down a full size. I normally wear a 9 shoe, and the 8 was the answer here. They'll feel a touch snug at first, but they'll stretch enough to feel like a slipper.

Responded on

Agreed. Size down one full size.

A classic that still delivers

I've had these boots since early November and wanted to really put them through hell before I commented on the overall status of it as a product.....then I forgot about writing the review because I couldn't find anything truly bad about them! With a true to size fit, crepe rubber bottom, and a patterned inside, these boots are both stylish and conventional. Ready for both a night on the town, dressed up, dressed down, or for a trip to the grocery store, these boots cover every possible situation (maybe not backcountry hiking, but you get the drift). The only "flaw" (if you'll call it that) is the laces which appear to be a bit flimsy. I ended up matching the colors with a cheap-o pair at the dollar store and they?ve sadly held up better. I didn't want to dock this product a star based on the laces because for all I know, it may not be a design flaw but just me practically pummeling these shoes in every condition. Overall, buy these. Lastly, not to deter anyone, I bought these and took them home to wear for Christmas at my parent's house and my Mom said that she once owned a pair. So they?re cross-generational too!
