GQ Selects: Clarks’ Indispensable Desert Boot

Indispensable in your wardrobe. I like the Clarks Originals over all the desert boots out there. The gum sole breaks in better than any other and, when it does, there’s a comfort factor that just doesn’t exist in others. Some guys are put off by what they think is not a lot of support, but the shoes truly mold to the foot to become a very personal piece of footwear. Break them in like a pair of sneakers.

I encourage everyone to get stuck in the rain wearing them at least once to add a bit of character. They look great with any rolled-up khaki or jean or in outfits where conventional wisdom would say not to use, like a navy suit.
