Designer brand Hobo has teamed up with Clarks for this classic dessert boot with studded heel detailing. The suede shoes look like any other desert boot from the front but when turned around feature studded and a leather Hobo tag that add a bit of edge.

The studded dessert boots come in both tan and black with contrasting colored laces (orange and blue) to make sure your feet stand out in a crowd.

Implications - As people move into conglomerate cities and metropolitan centers with greater frequency, it becomes increasingly important to separate oneself from the endlessly flowing crowds. Products like these ensure a degree of individuality without the cost of whacky, over-the-top accessories. This is a delicate balance to achieve, but one that comes with considerable business rewards.
