In the first year of owning my Clarks Desert Boots, I had quite the experience. I traveled to Europe in them. Flying with the Clarks Desert Boot to these destinations was a breeze. Easy to pass through the airport due to its two eye construction which makes tying and untying the boots a breeze. It is also light enough to walk around all day in comfort without slowing you down. It’s my go-to boot for travel.
In Europe, I walked with them down the Champs Eylesses in beautiful Paris, strolled down the cobblestone streets of Bruge in Belgium, and walked up the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. The boots have been wet, dry, and muddy; especially in Ireland. In Paris, we went to the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles, and the Arc de Triomphe. When traveling the last thing you want to worry about foot comfort of care. Put your mind at rest. The Clarks Desert Boots travel well.
What you see in the video is total neglect on my part. I hadn’t preserved the leather at all up to this point. The patina that develops on the Beeswax boot is remarkable. You can see scratches and nicks in the video but I think they add character to the boot. After filming this video I set about to preserve the leather which you can see on the page “Shoe Care“. If you are flying, walking, or adventuring, The Clarks Desert Boots are a great choice.
