Mickey Mouse Celebrates His 90th Birthday With a Clarks Boot

Get ready to party. This month Mickey Mouse turns 90, and among the celebrations marking the event is as limited-edition footwear collection from Clarks Originals that pays homage to the famous Disney character.

Debuting on ClarksUSA.com and in Clarks stores today, is a reimagined Clarks Desert Boot that depicts a debossed Mickey Mouse from his debut film, “Steamboat Willie,” at the heel quarter. The iconic boot, launched in 1950, is available in sand-colored suede from the company’s historic partner tannery, Charles F. Stead in Leeds, England. The boot is done in a a traditional stitch-down construction in Mickey’s signature red color.

The boot is available for men, women and kids, and comes in a textured collectors box wrapped in tissue paper featuring heritage sketches of Mickey through the ages.

The shoe is in sharp contrast to Mickey’s favored footnote — a slip-on style in yellow or black that features a roomy toe box for enhanced comfort.
