Desert boots, an important part of menswear today were born out of purpose. The conception of the idea for desert boots can be traced back to Egypt during WWII. The story involves the great grandson of one of the co-founders Nathan Clark, who was inspired to create these iconic set of kicks when he was stationed in Burma with the British army back in the early 1940s. He had seen how off duty officers were walking around in simple boots made of suede leather which they had been buying from a local bazaar because they were so comfortable, lightweight and sturdy at the same time. It did not take long for Nathan to realize the potential that this boot had if it were made from finer materials which is what he did upon his arrival back home.

Desert boots were primarily adopted for their comfort and ease of use, which led to them becoming one of the favourite things of men all over the world. It is not often that we see trends last so long in the world of fashion. Things either evolve or they get replaced. But the desert boots, although a little different from the way they have been made since they first were released to the market in 1949, continue to exuberate that familiar and irreplaceable charm.

It is because of their versatility, simplicity and effectiveness in adding mileage to different dressing scenarios that desert boots are such a phenomenon. Pair them up with your selvedge denim jeans, a blazer and a light t shirt to get a great dig at that smart casual look. You could also try to spice things up with a hoody or bomber to rock that street look, or keep things simple and wear them with polo t shirts and chinos. Whatever you do, they feel right at home and give your ensemble previously unexplored levels of maturity and character.
