We love the Clarks Desert Boot. It’s the authority on the subject. It’s certainly the one we write about the most. But while it’s a classic, it’s not the end all be all of crepe-soled suede footwear, not by a long shot. 

The world is full of great desert boots, and one of our other favorites is on sale today: the J.Crew 1990 MacAlister Boot. The Italian-made stompers are 24% off in three seasonally appropriate colors, including autumn gold, hunting green and auburn.

Even if you’ve never come across this particular style before, you’ll recognize the details, from the crepe rubber sole to the welt construction with the exposed stitching to the four-eyelet design to the soft Italian suede upper. The one thing to note before you snap up a discounted pair and proceed to pair them with just about every wardrobe ensemble is that they do run a tiny bit large; be sure to double check the sizing, and you may need to order a half-size down from what you normally wear.
