Who hasn’t had a pair?
The famous boots have been a main stay of the MOD scene since the 60s. Clark’s made the first pair in the 50s and the style has remained the same since.
They are a great starter for the traditional look, certainly based on the price compared to leather shoes. The availability of the boot means it is in reach of most, and they look good with jeans and a suit.
If you notice in Quadrophenia the cast seem to live in them, I assume because it would have been good for the Brighton scenes, ie, the running around bits. One of my favourite MOD images though is from the MODS book: suede jacket, white jeans and desert boots.
These are made by IKON and a really comfy. I wear a pair to work most days. They come with a Tartan Lining which means they dont rub.
