It hasn’t been that warm this week in London and when I came across what Clarks had done with the classic desert boot for this autumn at the press day, I yearned for a chill in the air. This winter one of the Desert Boot styles will be lined in furry sheepskin which makes it a bit like a tailored Ugg boot.
The Desert Boot is a joy to wear and now it’s going to be as comfortable and warm (well almost) as the the ubiquitous Ugg boot, I think it will make a good alternative. I often get a bit over-heated in my Uggs, too much sheepskin can be a bit overwhelming, temperature wise, so I’ll be interested to see how these new Clarks ones perform. Could they be the new Ugg do we think?
There is also a style with a smart knitted collar around the boot, looking for all its worth as if it’s wrapped in a warm jumper (below), with just as much ‘warmth appeal’.
Out in September, they will be around £79 – £89, check out the Clarks website for further information.
Will the lined ones be coming to the states?
They certainly should do, but we’ll ask today Nora. A
Wouldn’t slushing through snow (or rain) ruin a knitted collar like that? Or has it been treated with something?
I think it’s detachable, but you are right, it would not be ideal snow slushing foot wear, more indoors and snuggling footwear….A
Indoors and snuggling, that sounds wonderful…. The weather is so bloody awful where I live, I’m beginning to long for a warm fire.
My trusty plain Clarks desert boot, bought at a snip a couple of years ago are really just what it says on the tin!
They are perfect for cold, dry days only so I don’t wear them if it looks like rain or snow!
Sad news Nora, the sheepskin lined ones will not be available in the US, so you’ll need to sweet talk a travelling friend A
