The Story

The desert boot's story begins in a bazaar in Cairo. South African soldiers, in search of something more suitable for the desert terrain than standard military boots, stumbled upon the cooler, lighter combination of a crepe sole and a suede upper. Adopted by preppies in the 1950s, thanks to its comfort and rugged good looks, the boot moved beyond the desert to become a stylish choice in just about every environment.
