A lux black suede desert boot for men who want class and durability. This has a strong sole constructed in leather and sandwiched with rubber so it will last. This is called a desert boot for that very reason: it was Nathan Clark (of Clarks shoe fame) who discovered that army officers in Burma were wearing lightweight suede boots with a crepe sole. He found they were made in Cairo and decided to take the idea and make a round toe suede desert boot in the UK. Mens desert boots became popular in the US in the 50s and even more so in the UK in the 60s with the advent of the mods and beatnik culture. With the style legend that is Steve McQueen making them even more desirable, this style of suede boot became a symbol of cool young things and a retro mod classic. Recent stars like Paul Weller and Liam Gallagher also sport these cool mens desert boots. This designer black suede desert boot for men has lovely touches like the leather at the back and piping around the throat. The architecture of the heel is the strong point and you can see the layers of leather and rubber from which it is made. Suede need not be shunned in winter as if you spray it with a protector and look after it, it will last. Use a shoe tree for shape and if they do get wet, stuff paper in them to absorb the moisture. Let them dry and store them in a cool dry place (preferably not in a box) as suede likes to breathe. Affordable designer black suede desert boots for men who require quality and style.
