Plain and simple: desert boots have the power to contrast your clothes. You want your suit or dark jeans to look a bit more casual? You want your khaki shorts to look a bit more dressed up? Sport a pair of the suede lace-ups, which may seem a bit stifling for summer, but are actually a light (breathable) alternative to your everyday oxfords. (Photos: Courtesy)
The Clark shoe company introduced the Desert Boot in 1950, inspired by the crepe-soled suede boots worn by British officers in Egypt during World War II.
