Desert boots may have run out of novelty, but there still a few remnants kicking around.

For instance, Southern Gentleman Billy Reid’s shoe-boot hybrid. The bottom is all oxford, but we detect a notable Clarks influence around the sloping laces.

As for the non-sandproof soles, we doubt he’s trudging through many dunes in Tennessee.

(Hat tip to the Choosy Beggar for the find.)
