The Clarks Desert Boot has been around for a very long time (read: my Dad rocked them when he was my age), and now this unisex style just got a very feminine upgrade via an angular heeled shootie, the Water Row. The fashion forward off-shoot of the main label, indigo by Clarks, has some great boots, booties, shooties, and more for fall, but I find this style to be the most enticing and metropolitan for fall 2011. Plus, you can’t really compete with Clarks’ dedication to comfort; this shoe is ultra light weight and features a padded foot bed cushion to ensure all-day durability. I usually need to switch shoes for my subway commute, but these certainly did the trick all day long with no hassle or aching feet that I’ve sadly become accustomed to. This is my first foray into the Clarks brand, and I have to admit, I am loving what I am seeing AND feeling!
My Water Rows came courtesy of PlanetShoes.com, an online shoe retailer since 2001, based in Waltham, Massachusetts, and dedicated to eco-friendly, wellness, and vegan shoes in addition to major shoe brands such as Sorel, Ecco, Sperry, Kenneth Cole Reaction, Kork-Ease, The North Face, Sofft, Sanuk, Vintage Shoe Company, and more. Plus, check out these sweet wedges by Gabor — I think they are next on my fall must-have boots list! Planet Shoes is determined to carry comfortable, stylish and well-made shoes, but what I love most about them is that PlanetShoes.com not only promotes green products but also takes major strides toward supporting other green initiatives such as NuRide, 1% For The Planet, Carbonfund.org, and more.
