Clarks x Supreme

Clarks are all grown up and have become 'cool'.

I've done a lot of stomping around in Clarks shoes in my time. Weekends and 'mufti' days aside, I wore Clarks black leather school shoes everyday for 13 years. Often scuffed, but always faithful, they were with me for the entire duration of my compulsory eduction - rain, hail, spilled Milo and shine. Clarks are all grown up now, and they've become 'cool'. So cool, in fact, that they've collaborated with cult New York skate label Supreme. The Clarks shoe is question is the classic desert boot. To be fair, Supreme haven't made any dramatic changes. They've redesigned the ankle area, sloping the back and adding an extra lace attachment in the form of a hook eye. They've also chosen to use nubuck for the upper.

The boots will be available in the more traditional desert boot colours of black, gray and sand, as well as navy blue and Supreme's trademark red. So far we only have a Japanese release date - sometime in May, but we're expecting them to hit Australia by the end of the year.
