traditional desert boots vs phenia desert? which shape for summer and rolled up jeans?
Phenia is Clarks Originals Higge, they're calling it a more feminine cut. I love Originals and rue the day I threw out my dusky pink ones all those years ago. I've got my hands on some purple clarks originals phenia desert and they are pretty beautiful, but not sure if the design is undermined by the changes and whether to just go back to the chunkier shape. They are lovely and neat about the ankle though...
I'm totally confused about what is supposed to be original here. The desert boots I remember were quite high on the ankle, more like 'Mrsfrumble's' but in dusky blue suede - none of those colours look right.
But yes, clumpy every time. Excellent with roll ups - kerching.
Flo - I totally get this. My ankles are my best leg joints so I would prefer to show them off! They are a departure from the proper shape though and I'm not sure if this makes them look like an 'inferior' copy! I def don't wish to be wearing mumsy shoes either! They were only 30 quid too. Gah! Purple phenia or look out for some proper desert boots in I don't know what colour!?
