Suede All-Weather, All-Terrain Desert Field Boot
Similar to the Chukka Boot (often called the ‘Desert Boot’ because of having been much adopted -in suede- by both British and German forces in North Africa), this boot, fully laced, is designed for all-terrain and all-weather. Suede, contrary to common perception, is suitable in the most inclement weather. Mud and salt can be rinsed away and, once dried and given a quick brushing, suede boots and shoes are ready to serve again unblemished.
The high standard of workmanship in Church’s example of this boot includes an original Goodyear welted sole to which a new high-profile “Commando” style sole and heel have been added. The result is a massive all-weather, all terrain boot, reliable and durable off-road and just as comfortable and handsome in town.
