I don't know a whole lot about Emma Hope other than their desert boots look great. We've mentioned several dozen pairs of desert boots on the blog it seems, all are slightly different in their cut, materials and soles it seems, but achieve the same look. I can't really argue that Emma Hope's version is going to do anything different. However, the black suede isn't that easy to come by, and the low profile natural colored sole do look great. From the pictures it does appear to have a leather lining which is pretty much a necessity for me if I'm buying another pair of shoes. All in all, these are better looking than Clarks in my opinion - but are they $200 better looking?
