A Trend for Everyone by Laura

Last week, we talked about the rise of military-inspired fashion.  Here is a variation of the military or utilitarian trend in footwear: the Chukka Boot.

Clarks Desert Boot

These ankle-length boots have two or three rows of lacing, and are also known as “Desert Boots,”  named after the boots worn by British soldiers in the Western Desert Campaign during World War II.  The boots look vintage with their basic pioneer style, but have become a trendy asset to complement any outfit.  The moccasin-shoe-hybrid can be dressed up or dressed down.

What’s great about these boots is that they are unisex.  And if us gals want to elevate our look, we can opt for the wedge chukka.  Better yet is the comfort factor: you won’t want to take these off!
