A BATHING APE has linked with Clarks Originals for an eye-catching Fall/Winter 2020 capsule collection. Featuring interpretations of the latter’s Wallabee and Desert Boot — which is celebrating its 70th anniversary — this limited-edition release stays true to its roots, yet maintains relevance in today’s world.

Showcased with a lookbook featuring England and Manchester City footballer Raheem Sterling, each collaborative shoe is a unification of classic styles with modern streetwear vibes. Sterling himself was born in Kingston, Jamaica, a country that played a massive part in the rise of Clarks Originals in Western culture throughout the 1960s and 70s.

Crafted using materials from the Charles F. Stead tannery, Clarks Originals’ Wallabee and Desert Boots have remained unchanged since their respective releases – and this collaboration is no different. From the length of the stitching to the refined last a shoe is formed around, each offering is in-keeping with its roots.

Featuring a co-branded leather lining, the Wallabees feature an extra-light outsole with a unique shark tooth tread and a signature BAPE camo textile on a suede vamp. The Desert Boot boasts laser-printed BAPE artwork – which is different on each foot in a pair – and is completed with the signature crepe outsole.

The BAPE x Clarks Originals capsule collection will be available to buy from the BAPE webstore and the Clarks Originals Berwick Street Store, London, from August 8 2020.

In other news, BEAMS has revisited Clarks Originals’ Desert Boot for its FW20 collection.
