Of all the men’s styles available at Clarks, the Wallabee and the Desert Boot are the most iconic.

In order to reinvigorate the styles with a brand new flair, the footwear company has teamed up with a streetwear legend and a football legend in an extremely exciting new collab.

A Bathing Ape – also known as BAPE – and Clarks Originals reworked the classic shoes with new colourways and patterns, with the whole collection being modelled by none other than Raheem Sterling.

The BAPE Wallabee features pink or teal suede along the top with a camo design along the sides. The BAPE Desert Boot are more muted in tone, but with laser-printed BAPE designs on the sand or oak uppers.

Other details like a jagged outsole on the Wallabees take things up a notch, and the Manhunt branding that harks back to the BAPE boots of yesteryear.

The collaboration marks 70 years of the Clarks Desert Boot, which has been completely unchanged since its launch in 1950.

Despite the streetwear features, these boots will still be made with the same Charles F Stead materials, with everything from the stitching to the laces bearing the quality you might expect.

The capsule collection will be available to buy from BAPE and Clarks websites, as well as the the Clarks Originals Berwick Street Store, London, from 8 August 2020.

They’ll be priced the same as the ‘regular’ styles (£120 to £140 for Wallabees and £110 to £120 for Desert Boots). Be quick, though, as you’ll probably see them on StockX for much more after the release.
