Clarks Desert Boot
celebrates its 65th year in 2015. For much of that time their Desert Boot has been the go-to shoe for celebrity bad boys and icons of the counter-culture. One of its most recognizable advocates in the 60s was Steve McQueen, dubbed the coolest man who ever lived, who played a large part in establishing Clarks Desert Boot as a symbol for those who choose to play by their own rules. Decades later, Desert Boot-wearing celebrities are walking their own paths (and following in his footsteps).
