Founded in 1950 from an idea of Nathan Clark, the Desert Boot is a key-model of the brand’s offering, as well as the protagonist of several revampings that have never compromised on its DNA, while strengthening its role as an icon of the casual dress code all over the world. To this day, it is still considered an original: from the refined shape to the length of the stitching. The rubber sole is produced in Sri Lanka in accordance with an eco-sustainable process, while the suede used for the upper comes from the historic English Charles F. Stead tannery.
Craftsmanship, heritage, authenticity and innovation are the same values characterising the SS20 collection by Clarks: a combination of meticulous structures, top materials and sustainable design. The colour palette includes both typical season shades and tones that are more basic: chambray, pink sand, Sahara tan, khaki, earthy colours, along with Zen details that convey a contemporary touch.
Among the models of the new collection is the Desert London model featuring a classic design plus a welt in full leather, lining in leather and insole in plain leather for greater durability and higher level of comfort. There is then the Wallabee, a revolutionary shoe born in 1968 with the characteristic moccasin-like structure, beloved by musicians and artists around the world. Next, the Desert Trek model created in 1972 is characterised by central stitching, which has never changed its mood. Finally, the latest proposal destined to become the new icon of the 21st century is the Trigenic Flex model, refreshing a classic model from the Clarks’ archive and combining it with the latest technological and biomechanical solutions. The distinct sole divided into three parts revolutionises natural foot movement, while the upper features an all-Clarks stitched detail.
