Clarks Originals Celebrates Six Decades Of The Desert Boot

The Desert Boot turns 60 this year. To celebrate, Clarks Originals has released six new, unique designs inspired by the 1950s through the 2000s. There are three styles for women and three for men. Each pair of the 60th anniversary Desert Boots, which retail for about $146, comes in a specially designed box. There are souvenirs too — the booklet on Six Decades of Looking Forward to the Past and a replica keychain made from the same materials as the boot. [Clarks]

All this talk about the Desert Boot has made me nostalgic for my Catholic school days because this boot was one of the only shoe designs that could satisfy the strict dress code but also provided style and safety for the female students. After the jump, see how you can sport the Desert Boot today.
