Clarks Originals x END

capture

The latest in a succession of collaborators drawn to Clarks Originals and their reputation for iconic design combined with craftsmanship is UK-based clothing and footwear retailer, END.

Specialists in luxury men’s style and premium street wear from all over the world, END. has worked with the Clarks Originals’ designers to create ‘Black Diamond’ – a chukka boot inspired by the industry that helped shape the North East of England, home to the retailer’s flagship store.

Crafted from coal black leather and suede supplied by Charles F. Stead – the Leeds tannery that has been supplying Clarks Originals for more than six decades – Black Diamond utilises both sides of this premium double-faced bovine leather. The upper of this unique collaborative style has been made using a Clarks Desert Boot last and is combined with a Desert Trek wedge sole in black and silver stitching. Three eyelets, veg tan fobs and a woven heel pull are among the finishing touches. Black Diamond retails for $249.95.

This worldwide collaboration is available in Australia exclusively at Up There and Cabinet Noir.

CLARKS ORIGINALS X GOODHOOD

This season sees an exciting new collaboration between Clarks Originals and award winning brand Goodhood. Based on the Clarks Originals Wallabee, these limited edition styles feature the classic crepe sole with a contemporary upper design.

“I grew up wearing Wallabees through the British acid house era and it is a shoe I love,” says Jo Sindle, Co-Founder of Goodhood. “We focused on trying to stay true to the original and updating it with sympathetic details taking inspiration from the music videos of that era. The finished product is interesting but totally easy to wear and we know our customers are going to love them”.

““The synergy between Goodhood and Clarks Originals has always been very strong,” says Dan Newton, Group Head of Product at Clarks Originals. “They’re a fantastic partner for us, beautifully curated products in a wonderful environment. This collaboration epitomises Jo and Kyle’s strive to deliver classic products with a contemporary crafted twist, and it’s fundamental that our icons continue to be re-energised like this”.

LIMITED EDITION | Made in England

Clarks Originals Desert Boot Limited Edition | Made in England

Clarks Originals celebrates the 65th anniversary of the Clarks Desert Boot with a special Made in England collaboration which sees the Originals brand and the Charles F. Stead factory come together to create a handcrafted, limited-edition Clarks Desert Boot which heroes the artisanal skills at the centre of British style today.

After Nathan Clark stormed America with his revolutionary Desert Boot design in the early 1950s, it was to the highly-skilled shoemakers and tanners of England that he turned to produce the boots which would go on to become signifiers of cool around the world. Each of the 1,950 pairs – a number chosen to reflect the year when the boots first hit the market – of Made in England Desert Boots are hand-numbered and come with spare leather laces. The collaboration honours the unique partnerships forged by Clark, which are still integral to the Desert Boot 65 years on.

The original Cordova Velour suede which characterised the very first Desert Boot styles of the 1950s came from long-time Clarks collaborators, Charles F. Stead. Based in Leeds, England since 1895, the tannery is renowned worldwide for the exceptional quality and colours of its suede.

Available in Australia from 1st July 2015, the Made in England Limited Edition Clarks Originals Desert Boots come presented in collectible packaging containing commemorative artwork. Potts Printers of Northumberland, a family-run company founded in 1875 by William John Potts produced the limited edition boxes which also includes
