Japan’s NEIGHBORHOOD and England’s Clarks Originals have been working together for over a decade, and the latest result of the long-running partnership is new iterations of the classic Desert Trek and Wallabee Low. Equipped with technical materials and dressed in NEIGHBORHOOD’s signature monochromatic palettes, each pair is an artful fusion of cultures.

Presented in grey, the Desert Trek offers a look that’s somewhere between boot and moccasin. The upper is constructed of a soft and supple suede, with a light grey claiming the majority of the space while a darker grey is used to provide a toothed pattern around the lower half of the forefoot. Heels are brought together by a grey leather patched with a debossed graphic of a hiker.

Meanwhile, the Wallabee Low keeps things more subtle, moving the toothed print to the collar where it’s presented in a much smaller fashion. Black GORE-TEX fabric on both the lateral and medial sides combines with a suede toebox and throat for an interesting medley of materials, and a small GORE-TEX tag is pinned to the collar as well.

Both styles feature durable Vibram rubber midsoles/outsoles — white for the Desert Trek, black for the Wallabee — and a duo of hangtags: one with a NEIGHBORHOOD text logo, the other with a Clarks motif.

The NEIGHBORHOOD x Clarks Desert Trek and Wallabee Low will be available at retailers like BSTN on January 18, with the Desert Trek priced at $180 USD and the Wallabee Low arriving for $190 USD.

On the technical end of the spectrum, Nike ACG has readied a new Zoom Terra Antarktik boot in three bold colorways.
