Desert Boots

Men's Desert Boots & Chukka Boots

The first desert boots, designed by Nathan Clark, were inspired by the ankle-high suede chukka boots worn by soldiers in Africa. These original desert boots were launched by Clarks Shoes in 1949. The popularity of the desert boot has never waned; desert boots look great all year round and these days they’re available in a multitude of styles and shades. The classic desert boot has soft suede uppers in a practical camel colour, crepe soles and simple 2 or 3 eyelet lacing. The desert boot really is the perfect combination of casual style and comfort. At Atom Retro you’ll find men’s desert boots and chukka boots in suede, leather and canvas, and in a variety of classic or contemporary colours. Our men’s desert boot brands include Ben Sherman, Dr Martens and Pretty Green.

How To Wear Desert Boots

Desert boots shot to popularity in the 1960s as Mods adopted this these practical boots to wear on their scooters. You can achieve the Mod style by teaming your men’s desert boots with a knitted polo, jeans and a Harrington jacket. If you prefer a more contemporary look you can dress your desert boots either up or down. If the occasion is formal, a pair of clean desert boots worn with a suit makes for a cool smart look. For everyday wear, style your desert boots with black jeans and layered tops to suit the weather. Whether your personal style is retro or modern, desert boots are a wardrobe essential that you’ll wear time and again.
