It was way back in the swinging 60s when Lance Clark debuted a future Originals classic: the Wallabee. The Wallabee is far greater than just the sum of its parts. In fact, more than fifty years on from its conception, it's nothing short of legendary - an emblem of style tribes from every corner of the globe.
The definitive Clarks Originals silhouette with cultural cachet like no other, the Desert boots made their debut in 1949. It was in the early 90s though, that they really came into their own. With minimalist branding and that distinct natural crepe sole, the Desert Boots offered a lowkey, heritage-rich alternative to the era's flashy sneaker culture. An icon was born.
