People on this forum are big on clark's desert boots. They're not bad.

Why not just go for the desert boot? They look better than both of those options, IMO.

I like the desert boots, but I don't want suede. I love my beeswax desert khans.

Having trouble deciding between the two. Also open to any other suggestions.


Both strike me as pretty generic, with a certain amount of unmotivated detail. Either will provide warmth and protection to your feet without looking silly.

Yea, mine are military surplus ones. Those look pretty similar except a bit higher on the heel and without the higher tops with the straps and buckles. Not bad for sneaker/boot type things if people are into that. I dunno about the pallidum ones, but i need a fucking insole in mine.

That's the first I've seen of black leather desert boots. Those might be the ticket.

I like the canvas boots too, but I'm really looking for something leather this time around.

^^ I first heard of the baggy boots from A Harris, and I think they're the same as the IDF ones. Surprisingly well made for canvas anything, really.


I like DBs in general, but not in black. If I were to go w/ something leather in that price range, I'd get the Allen Edmonds Taunton from eBay. Look great with jeans.



Or perhaps something off Yoox. Use the SF affilliate link.

I was about to get those until I realized that I've been wearing too much black for the last couple of years.
