Clarks Originals has an expansive history of collaborations with beloved franchises, renowned designers and brands from around the world. Recently, collections have included partnerships with Pokémon, Vandy The Pink and NEIGHBORHOOD. Now, Jun Takahashi’s titan of streetwear, UNDERCOVER, has connected with Clarks Originals for the first time to present the Wallabee boot in two colorways.
In this collaborative rendition of the iconic boot, famous UNDERCOVER motifs land on the upper of both colorways. First, an embroidered lightning bolt can be found on the left boot’s lateral towards the collar and heel. Beyond that, UNDERCOVER’s signature “CHAOS” and “BALANCE” motto arrives in white at the toebox of the right and left shoe’s respectively. Further co-branding is present on the shoe’s custom hangtags. Each colorway favors its named hue, “Black” or “Beige,” throughout the base of the upper while being supported by silver hardware and a crepe sole. Both pairs are equipped with alternate rope laces to complete the first installment of this partnership.
Look for the UNDERCOVER x Clarks Originals Wallabee boots in “Black” and “Beige” to hit shelves September 3 via UNDERCOVER stores, the UNDERCOVER webstore and Dover Street Market.
Elsewhere in the world of footwear, ENGINEERED GARMENTS has linked up with Dr. Martens to rework the iconic 1461 boot.
