For A/W 2019, Carhartt WIP has collaborated with Clarks Originals to create two variations of the English shoe brand’s iconic Wallabee Boot. Both iterations take cues from Carhartt WIP’s DNA. The Brown Combi colorway is informed by the hue of Hamilton Brown Canvas associated with some of the brand’s archetypal garments, such as the Michigan Chore Coat. Meanwhile, the Olive Camo colorway nods to Carhartt WIP’s incorporation of military references into its collections – a recurring theme since the brand began creating its own collections in the early 1990s.
Details also draw from classics, with brown and camouflage canvas trims offset by triple stitching, as well as a woven Carhartt WIP label.
Both shoes feature the renowned Clarks Originals crepe soul and a plush upper created from Charles F. Stead tannery suede. This suede is both stain and water-resistant. Additionally, the two styles include a lace fob with Clarks Originals and Carhartt WIP co-branding.
Clarks Originals X Carhartt WIP will be available from SEPTEMBER 5TH, 2019 at Carhartt WIP Stores and the Clarks Originals store in London Soho, as well as selected retailers.
