Tough adventurer

An outdoor take on an urban classic, the Desert Men's Boot is inspired by the desert boot, a simple and robust boot worn by soldiers, explorers and adventurers since the 1940s. The Kathmandu take on this classic includes a hard-wearing Vibram sole, a full leather upper and a bellows tongue to keep debris out.

Leather Upper


  • Hard-wearing Vibram™ sole in Kathmandu green
  • Full leather upper
  • Ortholite™ insole
  • Bellows tongue – so you can keep debris out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever This is the second pair I have purchased My first pair are still going strong and looking good. Now I have a pair for working and my new pair to wear out casually They are the most comfortable boots/shoes I have ever owned. They fit well are hard wearing and the bonus is they look great too. Can’t rate them highly enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kathmandu men' desert boots Very comfortable, solid but quite lightweight boot, with rugged good looks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One year on These boots are great. I wear then 5-6 days a week and they are so comfortable. I very strongly recommend these. I hope that Kathmandu give us a heads up if they are going to change this style of boot, as I may have to buy a couple of pairs before the disapper, however if they update these with a slightly better grip, I will be one of the first to get a pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very stylish and comfortable footwear. I bought a pair 5 months ago to replace two previous pairs of Kathmandu Hillary boots that I'm progressively wearing out but can't replace with more Hillary boots. These Desert boots are a very good replacement. Being light-weight and suited to a slightly wider foot, they're very comfortable for all-day walking/work. They make an excellent cross-over for transition between a professional office/meeting environment and fieldwork. Whilst the Desert boot can handle some punishment they're probably a bit too dressy for regular work in the bush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual Good simple looking shoes. Could do with more grip but they have a comfortable sole. I recommend conditioning the leather to get a lot of life out of them. Happy purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort plus I bought these for my husband, who struggles to find comfortable shoes that fit. He is also a diabetic, so has foot issues. He has said these are the most comfortable shoes he has ever owned. Dressy enough to wear to work with chinos, as well as wear with jeans on the weekends. If they came in another colour, would buy them too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lovely looking but no grip Worst boots I have ever worn for grip - in two days I have slipped twice, the first time on wet tiles and the second time on a damp footpath. This is all within central/suburban Auckland so I'm not sure what conditions the sole is designed for.
