UK-based style stalwart END. recently teamed up with Clarks Originals to introduce a limited edition desert boot dubbed “Black Diamond.” The collaborative offering culls inspiration from 18th century coal mines sprawled along the north east region of England — commemorating the vast number of workers who toiled day and night to excavate the finest quality coal. The soot-black boot is primarily wrapped in bovine leather and sits atop a Desert Trek crepe sole. The rugged upper is juxtaposed with iron-effect eyelets and silver stitching alongside a 3M woven pull tab on the heel. Not to mention, the shoe comes in a bespoke textured shoebox coupled with a hessian coal sack that is emblazoned with the iconic insignias of both labels.
