Velour + Clarks: Desert Boot15/10/2012
I’ve been seeing some fantastic boots all over SF recently, piquing my interest to find a pair that I would want for myself. Desert boots came to mind immediately because I find them to be quite versatile while keeping their masculine aesthetic; the same pair of boots could be polished or rugged depending on the fit and styling of your daily ensemble. Some things I look for in an ideal desert boot are rich coloring (I prefer a warm brown), clean/minimal silhouette, and comfort. Admittedly, there are many shoes that qualify, but this collaboration between Velour and Clarks caught my eye with its nubuck woven side panels. It provides a point of interest without compromising on the cleanliness of the overall shoe. For those who prefer a darker, more muted colorway, Velour also offers them in a dark green version.
