As the brand that invented it, Clarks has made many iterations of the desert boot over the years, and one of the most underrated styles is the Bushacre boot. It features the same classic look of the original desert boot, but it’s both more affordable and utilitarian, thanks to the hard rubber sole.

The Bushacre 2 Chukka Boot is backed by over 16,000 five-star ratings, and it’s the no. 1 bestselling chukka boot on Amazon. Typically $100, it’s 40% off, dropping the price to $60. It’s available in both leather and suede, and it’s comfortable and easy to slip on and off. As a time-tested staple, the Clarks desert boot isn’t going anywhere, but this deal might not last. With a range of suede and leather options to choose from, you can pick up two pairs for less than a single full-price desert boot.

The original desert boot is made with a crepe rubber sole, making it comfortable and stylish. But crepe rubber absorbs scuffs and stains easily. That’s what makes the Bushacre 2 a great alternative. It has the same silhouette as the classic Clarks boot, but the hard synthetic rubber sole adds durability and stability. The two-eyelet ankle-cut design makes it easy to slip the boot on and off, and the shoe has a comfortable, roomy toebox. It’s available in suede or leather, including Clarks’ popular beeswax leather, a type of pullup leather that quickly takes on a lived-in patina. They are known for running large, and many shoppers take one half-sized down.

The Clarks’ Bushacre 2 held up in comparison to the more expensive original desert boot, with one writing, “Apparently the crepe soles are also known for wearing out faster and losing grip when wet. Having worn the Bushacre 2 for about six months in wet weather, I don’t find myself worrying about slipping during normal activities. The soles may lack tread, but they do have a significant texture to them that provides perfectly adequate grip.” They also added: “If you’re trying to decide between the Bushacre 2 and the Original Desert Boots, I think these are a fantastic value.”

Shoppers were also impressed when using the boots for work. “I am a handyman by trade and have literally worn these every day for eight years,” one shopper wrote. “The only thing that’s gone wrong is I have replaced the laces twice. Except for the scuffs, abrasions and some paint and drywall dust on the leather uppers, they are still pristine; every stitch is still fully in place.”

The Bushacre II boot is already a more affordable alternative to the Clarks desert boot. On sale for just $60, it’s more affordable than most sneakers, too. As a time-tested staple, the Clarks desert boot isn’t going anywhere, but this deal might not last.
