Yes, that’s right, this classic has just turned 65. But rather than pension the design off, the range has been added to with the special edition Clarks Originals 65th anniversary desert boots.
It’s an interesting choice of finish for the commemorative boot, described as a maple suede, which is matched with ‘sapphire’ laces. Perhaps a little too ‘fashion’ for some of its biggest fans, but certainly an eye-catching combination and perhaps appropriate as sapphire blue does represent a 65th anniversary.
You also get a commemorative fob to finish things off, just to so everyone nows these are a special edition (if the colour and laces didn’t do the job).
If you want a pair, they are available in various sizes on the Clarks site right now, selling for £89.
