Spring is finally here and I couldn’t think of a more perfect shoe than the Clarks Desert boot to compliment Spring/Summer apparel. Some colors just look perfect in certain leathers and this hue of blue in a matte faded nubuck is a prime example. Because the color is lighter than most Desert Boots it makes it easier to see the highs and lows in the nubuck, something I was definitely aiming for when working on this sample. Priced at $92, 300 pairs of the Slate Blue Desert boots will be available this Friday, April 8th at the David Z flagship (556 Broadway 212.431.5450) as well as the Davidz.com website at 10am Est.
