Clarks Desert Boot Sand Mickey – in celebration of the 90th anniversary of Disney’s Mickey Mouse, our iconic Desert Boot uses a sand suede from British tannery Charles F Stead. With red stitching in Mickey Mouse’s signature shade and embossed detail on the ankle and fob of Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willy, these boots pay homage to the beloved cartoon character.
Launched in 1950, the Desert Boot was inspired by a rough boot from Cairo’s Old Bazaar. An instant hit, it became the footwear of choice for off-duty army officers. Adapted to make them wearable for kids, these boots use a rubber sole made to look like crepe while a lace fastening offers a secure fit.
