We reckon the original desert boot is still the best. Designed in 1945 by Clarks, it truly is a strong contender in the greatest-shoe-of-all-time stakes, loved by everyone from teddy boys to rude boys, mods, Parisian revolutionaries, pop stars and Hollywood A-listers.
This year, the sturdy, suede staple is celebrating its 65th birthday by reinventing itself for 2014. So, say hello to a brand spanking new set of Clarks Originals, full of updated, modern and more technical takes on their classic.

How to wear them
The desert boot is, of course, the pick ?of the bunch when it comes to shoes. It goes with almost every outfit you own: crisp shirt, slim cut jeans and a blazer? Yes. Logo sweater, skinny jeans and a pea coat? Looking sharp. Chinos, plain tee and a waxed jacket? Damn dapper.
