Suede desert boots are a mainstay—McQueen rarely straddled a bike without his—but designers never ventured beyond khaki and brown. That just changed. For spring, the boots got spiked with an array of colors that will give new life to your jeans, chinos, and suits. It’s time to let those tan boots fall to the back of the closet—and go electric.

GQ Answers Your Questions
One of our baller readers asks: Any suggestions as to what kind of boots I should buy? Is the “season for boots” over?
The “season for boots” is over, hombre, but the time is ripe to get your boat shoe game on. We suggest a pair with some punch, like this spread from our April issue. Snag a multi-colored, neon-soled pair with rope laces—anything that’s not brown. If the pair would freak out someone with a country-club membership, then you are doing something right. But if you’re really set on boots, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of suede desert boots from Clarks. That said, shitkicker season will be here soon—keep an eye out for the white-soled variety.
