I stand by this, although I personally would probably go more middle of the road (Loakes) just because I like to be certain of these things.
Anyway, for anyone who doesn’t know what I’m trying allude to here, the “only” desert boot according to some people is somewhere between the Clarks original and the H1 by Hutton. The legend is conflicted as to which is superior.
Both of these are set out below, for you extra-boojie people, hell-bent on recreating the 1960s (which is fair enough). I’m unfussed personally and I like a bit of colour in my life (which Clarks does lean toward), as long as that classic design is paid homage to.
For those of you who are literally blind, I am going to draw attention to a new thing popping up on my site now - an invitation to preview my new website, which will do this kind of thing for you - i.e. find you your classic sixties stuff online. There's a free trial so don't kick off about it, just do me a favour and have a little look - you'll find these on there... and more.
