Probably one of our favorite shoe brands has to be Clarks. For us, they’re the Vans of the shoe world. Meaning, they’re cool AF, always on trend, and kind of fit pretty perfectly. If you haven’t shopped them in a while (or ever), now’s the perfect time to give them a whirl. In the recent times we’ve all be living in, we all deserve a fresh start and something that’ll add a little spring in our step.
Overall, Clarks has some really great shoe choices for both men and women. But for this review we’re just filling you in on our obsession with their men’s shoe line. We’ve been shopping them for at least a decade and we’re proud to report that their famous desert boots are always in style. They’ve even made our Best Shoes Guide season after season. No, we’re not stalkers, we just really like them. Like, a lot.
We started out, years ago, with their tan suede desert boots. We basically ran those things into the ground. TBH, we actually like them better when they’re a little broken in and a little dirty. Not too dirty. It’s like when you get a new pair of Chucks. They always look better with a little wear and tear.
Most of our time wearing these were walking to and from our job in NYC. Spoiler Alert: The sidewalks are nasty. The bottom of our boots would eventually turn black, so every other year we’d refresh them by buying ourselves a new pair. We always felt guilty about retiring them because they were still in great condition, minus the soles.
Now, Clarks has so many different styles, colors, and materials to choose from. So, of course, we have them in all sorts of colors and rotate them throughout the change of seasons. You can choose from classic suede, leather, and our personal favorite…beeswax. And, fine, if dessert boots aren’t your jam they have a bunch of other choices too like:
- Chelsea Boots
- Ankle Boots
- So. Much. More.
They were actually our first pair of affordable wingtip boots too. And, honestly, the most comfortable we’ve ever worn. So, we definitely recommend checking them out, especially now when we could all use a little extra self-care time.
The Deal With the Deals:
The good news is that you don’t have to wait for a major holiday to get a pretty great deal on your fave pair of Clarks. They’re having some really amazing deals just about every single day. And, even better, it’s not strictly shoes and boots from last season either.
On any given day you can typically save, on average, around 15% – 20% off their original prices, which is kind of awesome. On top of that sale, at times, they’ll even give you an extra 20% off with a promo code for the day. More on that in a bit. In the meantime, check out all their deals for the day right here!
To Gift or Not to Gift:
Not only have we been gifted their desert boots (pretty regularly) but they make excellent gift ideas too. We put together this quick gift guide on some fun ideas to gift some of the pickiest peeps on your list.

The Deal With Promo Codes:
We know you’re always looking for these and we totally get it. But here’s the deal. Clarks doesn’t give out promo codes or coupons to other sites. We, unfortunately, don’t have them here either. When we’ve checked some other sites we didn’t see any that were valid. Maybe we just had bad luck, but pretty doubtful.
The good news is that they actually do have their own active promo code offers that are for their customers (new or old) right on their site. So, def shop direct with them. In the past we’ve seen some options for a 20% discount code after you subscribe to their newsletter and they have a pretty generous discount for those in the military, nurses, teachers, and more.
As always, shop them direct to see what’s active and exclusive. You can’t go wrong. Check them out here!
