Furthering on from our reveal of Clarks’ limited edition 40th anniversary Desert Trek shoe, we bring you a closer look at the classic style’s celebrated rendition. Accompanying this is the brand’s collaboration with the musically iconic Trojan Records. The efforts involve a commissioning of four artists to remix original tracks from the record company’s archives for Clarks’ #ORIGINALSREMIXED campaign, commemorating Jamaica’s 50 years of independence. Bringing the focus back on the shoe, the Trojan Records x Clarks Desert Trek model is offered in tan leather, a unique style that differs from the original Brown leather or suede versions known to most. Notable detailing includes a brandished Trojan logo on the quarter and the Desert Trek logo hit on the heel, while the insole reveals the model’s celebrated title. To draw back to the music, this post also introduces a featured track by Bay Area’s TOKiMONSTA — one of four from the #ORIGINALSREMIXED rosta — who’s track can be downloaded here. You can also grab fellow #ORIGINALSREMIXED artist Mighty Crown’s track here.
