Just bought a pair of Clarks desert boot in the sand suede and I love the look and feel so far. Now I have to find a belt that goes with them. Since I know many on the forum have these boots, I was wondering what kind of belt do you guys wear with them? Do you just try to match the sand color or do you look for one in suede, too? I found this belt online in a sand suede, but I'm not sure if it's going to look like overkill with the shoes. Also, it's kind of a dress belt and I'm going to be wearing the shoes with jeans or khakis so I'm not sure how it'd look. Thoughts?

You don't really need to "match" your belt to a pair of clarks. Just wear what looks natural.

I think woven belts in brown or tan leather look great with casual suede shoes. I have bought recently some woven fabric and cord belts, one in blue and one in a natural cotton color that would go with desert boots. You might also consider fabric belts with D rings.

I have a couple canvas ribbon belts in dark grey and olive green that I wear with my sand Desert Treks. I don't think you need to match exactly with such casual kicks.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I think I'm going to go with a cotton d ring one in a khaki color. Something like this maybe.

I've been dreaming of finding a D-ring like the cotton ones but made of undyed hemp. I figure it'll have a more interesting texture and age better. (I live in like the hemp capital of Canada, so it really shouldn't be that hard to find...
)

I usually buy my belts for my pants not my shoes. ???
