They are probably [big claim] the best desert boots I have actually owned.
Apart from the colour (tan) which pretty much goes with everything, the look of the boot is much more swept forward and angular.
This is unusual - most of the ones I’ve seen online are rounded, with a kind of flat “side elevation” if that makes sense. Which is annoying – it just looks rubbish frankly. As if you’re wearing clogs or something - they even have a heavy, clumping feel to them (even if they aren’t heavy).
By comparison, the Hudsons are light, look sharper (literally - almost to a blunt point) and even the crepe sole is more substantial than the usual. Which might explain why it feels so good to wear them – because it makes me feel taller!
So in summary, a pretty decent score for the record, certainly a rival to the Huttons or the Clarks that everyone raves about.
