Men's Desert Boots
Men's desert boots have been a popular footwear choice for decades. Originally designed for military use in desert environments, desert boots remain a stylish and practical choice for all seasons and occasions.
Desert boots are usually distinguished by their flat soles, the ankle height of the boot itself, simple utility styling and full traditional laces. Desert boots are comfortable, versatile and never out of fashion.
Why choose desert boots?
Desert boots are a versatile footwear choice, available in both smart and casual styles and can be worn all year round and in many different environments.
A practical boot, the ankle height means that your foot is supported, but your leg has full mobility and movement. The thick soles make them hard wearing and durable whilst ensuring a good grip.
Men's desert boots are not tightly structured like brogues or Chelsea boots. Regardless of foot shape and width, you can find the right boots to wear comfortably in any situation.
Choosing the right desert boot
When buying your pair of new desert boots, there are many different styles to choose from, including:
Casual desert boots are usually a less structured fit, in tones of stone and taupe. They go particularly well with jeans and a lumberjack shirt, but can also look good with shorts, making them an all-weather footwear choice.
Formal desert boots can be smart enough to wear as an office shoe or formal shoe. In this case, you would be looking at burnished leather or a high shine finish that compliments suits and smart trousers. Formal men's desert boots often come in black or dark brown.
Hiking style desert boots have more detail, with hooks for laces rather than eyelets. They often come in suede or faux suede and are in available in earthy colours such as brown or traditional sand colour.
