Fall/Winter 2009 sees the mark of a milestone in footwear fashion as Clarks Originals celebrate the birth of an icon. The story begins in Burma 1949, while serving with the West African Brigade, a young Nathan Clark creates the Desert Boot. The inspiration for the shoe came from a crepe-soled boot made out of rough suede popular in Cairo’s fabled Old Bazaar. The footwear of choice for off-duty Eighth Army officers, it was the boot’s simple line and conspicuous comfort that struck a chord with Nathan, a chord that, 60 years later, still chimes with people all over the world. To celebrate the Desert Boot’s 60th anniversary, Clarks Originals have created a collection of bold, vibrant special edition shoes. Each one is masterfully crafted to represent a decade of it’s existence, alive with history and steeped in style, each shoe illustrates a part of the Desert Boot’s Journey and what the shoe means to its dedicated fans throughout the ages.
