There aren’t many footwear labels out there as timeless as Clarks. Founded in Britain during the 19th century, the company has weathered through generations of change and trends, while still maintaining a devotion to their iconic boot styles and silhouettes. One style in particular that transcended into the fashion and pop culture world a long time ago is the Wallabee. The list of musicians who have penned a tune referencing the popular “cheesebottoms” is countless: Slick Rick, SuperCat, Rick Ross, WuTang, Vybz Kartel and Popcaan just to name a few. This fall, Clarks is giving us something new to talk about as they introduce their latest collaboration, with NYC-based streetwear brand, Staple.
