Aside from solid concept and excellent execution, there’s one thing that sets most BEAMS collaborations apart: bright orange. After recently seeing an Arc’Teryx Stinger jacket get the orange treatment, now comes the iconic Desert Boot. The BEAMS design team have taken the timeless, go-with-anything boot, and given it some major pop, with a bright orange suede upper. All the beloved Clarks Originals features are still there – the premium grade suede, the top notch stitching, and the crepe sole, and matched with the bright color scheme here, they keep things just sane enough for this shoe to work. It’s an interesting look for a desert boot, and a great match to set off some wool or plaid for the Fall season. Available in very limited numbers from Hanon; more images after the click.
