Footwear doesn’t get much more iconic or recognizable than the Clarks Desert Boot, which believe it or not has been around since way back in 1950. Now, Clarks Originals is celebrating the little-known history of the legendary shoe with a new web series called The Story of the Clarks Desert Boot.
The Story of the Clarks Desert Boot, like the shoe that inspired it, covers a lot of ground, including the shoe’s significance as a touchstone relating to important political events across the globe, from Paris to Jamaica and points beyond. It’s an illuminating watch, and unless you’re a Clarks historian you’ll almost certainly learn something from it.
You can check out the first episode of The Story of the Clarks Desert Boot below. And for the rest of the series, as well as more interesting video content from Clarks Originals, head over to the brand’s official YouTube channel right here.
