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.
