I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that Clarkes had brought back the desert boots to celebrate 60 years. A firm favourite from my youth, I wore my bright green desert boots every where from youth club, to sailing and roller disco (in the days when it just wasn't cool to actually roller skate at a roller disco). There was a great selection of desert boots with a different style for each decade. I found it very difficult to decide which one I liked best and could quite happily buy them all, one for each day of the week. I am already picturing outfits that I would wear them with.
If however, I was pushed (and in my current economic status, I probably will be) to choose just one, then it would have to be the Liberty print. I originally loved desert boots for their simplicity and yet now I would choose probably the least simple design. Perhaps an indication of how my style has changed over the years. I was also slightly surprised by the price. I always thought of desert boots as cheap and cheerful, not anymore, perhaps another sign of the times!
