I SPOT.ted these grape colored Desert Boots by MUNRO for $7.50 at St. Vincent De Paul awhile back after seeing a similar pair by Pedro Garcia for $460 in the February 2010 Lucky Magazine "Accessories Report." Desert Boots were originated by Clarks shoe company in the 1950s inspired by the suede crepe soled boots worn by British officers in WWII. Even though my thrifted version are missing the light crepe sole, I'm sure they'd still hold up well on a desert trek. They are even made in the U.S.A.!
It was surprisingly hard to find style inspiration of women wearing FLAT desert boots. Especially when most of the fashion forward desert boots out now all have wedge heels (which I admit I covet), but even more so when you are looking for people wearing eye-popping brightly colored desert boots. Maybe they should call them DESSERT boots instead? YUMMMMM dessert!! AnYWhO....
I was about to give up on my women-in-desert-boot-STYLE.inspiration hunt when I realized that would just be plain STYLE.discrimination (slash lazy) because men can be great style inspirations too! So here's a few ideas ladies and gents. I've even included some images of neutral color desert boots just to prove to you there's no discrimination of any kind happening here.
