Clarks Gets A Bathing Ape Makeover

London based footwear brand Clarks Originals partners up with BAPE for their first ever collaboration. Read on to get a closer look at the upcoming release.

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Clarks Originals’ Desert Boots silhouette, the London based footwear brand is collaborating with Japanese streetwear label BAPE to release an eye-catching Fall/Winter capsule collection.

Established in 1825, Clarks has been producing high quality footwear for the longest time. With their signature Wallabee and Desert Boots silhouettes, the brand effortlessly combine traditional craftsmanship and innovative footwear technology.

Both silhouettes have been crafted using materials from the Charles F. Stead tannery - the original tannery from which the materials for the first Wallabee and Desert Boots came from. Every detail of the shoes, from the length of the stitching to the refined 220 last that each boot is formed around, remains unchanged and true to the original.

The Desert Boots are available in two colourways 'Sand Suede' and 'Oak Suede', and feature laser printed BAPE branding on each foot in a pair along with the classic Clark’s signature crepe outsole. Both the silhouettes sport a comfortable leather lining, as well.

The collection is also aimed towards celebrating BAPE’s impact on the world of streetwear and its success in introducing Japanese fashion culture to the world.

The collection has been showcased with a lookbook that features legendary England and Manchester City footballer Raheem Sterling.

The shoes release on August 8th and can be purchased online from the BAPE and Clarks Originals web-stores for a retail price of around $150 - $200 (Rs. 11,250 - Rs. 15,000 approx.)
