The search term desert boot(s) on Google has all fingers pointing at the classic Desert Boot by Clarks. With a brand that's full of heritage (originated in the 1800s) Clarks deserve all the credits, no doubt about that.. Though, if I was asked to cast my vote for the ultimate desert boot at this point in time Opening Ceremony’s M1 Desert Boot would be the one for me. Opening Ceremony connects emerging American designers with established names from abroad for a lot of their collections. What I like most about the M1 Desert Boot is the simple, minimalistic design, the comfortable-looking flat leather sole and the use of interesting materials like croc skin and pony hair. Whether you own a suede or leather pair of M1’s or a more extravagant version, you just can’t go wrong with these. More pictures below.
