Great Boots--Iconic Design--Very Comfortable,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clarks Originals Men's Desert Boot (Shoes)
I've spent most of my life in boots of one sort or another and these are by far the best casual boots out there. They are great multi-tasksers--equally at home on the trails, at work, or on the town. These are my second pair of Clarks Desert Boots. I still have my first pair--the beeswax leather--I wanted them in black too.
The boots are very durable, well made, and are made from 100 percent natural and sustainable materials. Also, they last forever, provided you take care of them--use appropriate polish, mink oil and saddle soap as needed and these will go on forever. When the sole wears out it can be replaced inexpensively at most shoe and boot repair shops.
Although there are some tasks that other boots would be better for--I would much rather have my Gortex lined Matterhorns for slogging through the snow than my Clarks (these are desert boots, not slog through the Arctic boots)--the Clarks can step in and do the job--and still look like boots--as opposed to looking like a pair of beefed up sneakers like Hi Techs or what have you.
The only drawback to these boots is that they can be hard to get for under $100 or at all in some cases. They are rarely on sale and they sell out pretty quick. I had to wait three months to get these, but they are worth it.
