This was a desert boot invented in Australia at the same time Nathan Clark came out with his now famous desert boots in the UK. It has a ripple sole - the Clarks Trekker boots is a shameless rip-off but the Rossi Desert Boots appears to be Australian-made. Available in black suede. You can get them off the Australian Internet. A true icon! Made In Australia All Rossi boots are manufactured in Australia to quality Standards, using the finest leathers and materials available, maintaining Rossi s tradition for comfort protection and innovation.
