Clarks Originals partner with Thistle & Broom for limited edition desert boot

Clarks Originals has collaborated with Thistle & Broom, the Scottish brand known for its fair trade Fair Isle knits to produce a limited edition Desert Boot. Taking Clarks Originals Desert Boot, the style features a hand-knit shoe cuff from Thistle & Broom of yarns traditionally used in Aran jumpers.

A total of 1,200 pairs of the very special Desert Boots will be available. Each pair has been created by one of the 35 hand knitters that live across Scotland. The Clarks Originals sand suede 62 year old Desert Boot blends with the natural cream Aran yarn, sourced from Ardalanish Farms and Weavers on the Isle of Mull. The new limited edition Desert Boot will be available from Clarks Originals stores and the website from September priced at £149.00.
